George LaRoe mission February 8, 1945

February 8, 1945 Vienna, Austria

Lt. Olsen flew as co-pilot.  Almost forgot flaps on takeoff.  Entire 15th Air Force was out to hit Vienna.  We bombed PFF.  Barrage of flak covered whole Vienna area not much burst near us.  No holes.  Several boxes went over target abreast.  A false report at field had our ship shot up and coming in for crash landing.
