Target – Penzinger Goods station.  Turned back yesterday after 5 hrs.  Flying through overcast.  Today we made a very dangerous climb through overcast.  Formation split up.  We started back to field – found a break in ceiling and climbed out.  Finally located our formation.  Target changed to Graz – light accurate flak – hit bomb sight stabelizer.  Delaplaine toggled after a long bomb run.  Missed target but hit a chemical plant.  Eight 500 lbs.
