A. Warren Pearson Mission November 23, 1944

November 23, 1944       11th Sortie

Thanksgiving Day

Senaea, Jugoslavia- Rail bridge

19,500 feet

6 - 1,000 lb. bombs

Bombed bridge and made 360 degree because #2 formation did not drop bombs. Hit east approach and possibly end of bridge-- no flak. 5 Hr. mission. Left landing gear kept dropping--slid in and out of formation. Buck cheese- easiest of all missions so far. The bridge was alternate.

Temp. -40 degrees.


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.
