Moosbierbaum, Austria

8 -500 lb. bombs 2 delayed action bombs

24,000 feet altitude

Target covered by smoke from smoke pots. Vienna also covered -very clever. Formations split up-- our box bombed Parndorf airdrome. Knocked out two hangers and work shops. Very good bombing. I saw flashes of flame come through roof of one hanger. Formation caught flak over Moosbierbaum. It was all behind us. I saw one feeble puff of flak under ship. Nose gunner didn't see any escort

P-38's and P-5l’s sweated fighters out that mission. Worked on ball turret for over an hour. 253 bombers-- 149 escort. One bomber lost.


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.
