Roger Arendsee notes on the mission of September 10, 1944.
Ordinance Plant at Vienna, Austria. Flak was intense, heavy, & accurate. Hit our nose turret again. Kessey & Monowitz each got Purple Heart, but nothing serious. We saw at least 5 planes go down. Saw about 11 chutes ourselves. I only saw one though. James crew bailed out over Adriatic. [Or perhaps ditched.]
