October 29, 1944       5th Sortie (Double)

Munich, Germany - Marshalling yards

7 - 500 Ibs.

Amiable incendiary clusters--about 300 plane raid formation. Broke up as we crossed coast -- heavy clouds. 3 planes tagged on another formation-- dropped bombs at 27,000. Flak heavy as hell but not accurate -- very good evasive flying. Got hit by flak at 19,500 ft. at coast very accurate, but didn't get hit. Had P51 and P38 escort. Mission was bastard, 159 planes supposed to bomb Munich, only 35 went over, 29 from our bomb group. Target probably hit. Temp.- -40 degrees below F.


The website 376bg.org is NOT our site nor is it our endowment fund.

At the 2017 reunion, the board approved the donation of our archives to the Briscoe Center for American History, located on the University of Texas - Austin campus.

Also, the board approved a $5,000 donation to add to Ed Clendenin's $20,000 donation in the memory of his father. Together, these funds begin an endowment for the preservation of the 376 archives.
