March 8, 1945 22nd Sortie (Double)
6 - 500 lb. bombs Temp. -40 degrees F.
We had P-38 escort--excellent top cover. Primary target was for Russian support. Target was covered so we came back to Mariboro. We flew with [Paul George] Colonel. We came into target on wrong heading and was over it before Bombardier could set up his sight. We ran into very accurate flak. Possibly all 88's Colonel said target was covered so we peeled off. Took our bombs back to base. Mission about 8 hours.
