TSgt Young flew combat sorties 17 and 18 on March 21 and 24, 1945, respectively, targeting a jet airdrome in Neuberg, Germany. He noted on the 21st, "Flew at 23,000 feet, negative 34 degrees, with 108 fragmentation bombs, three to a rack. The wing really splattered that field. No flak and no signals over target on RCM." On the 24, he noted, "A few German jet propelled aircraft were in the area and all the flights were on the alert. Our bombs did not leave the ship on time and half of them landed outside the field in farmland. Flew at 19,000 feet. Took a course in Italian after we got back."

Hi Mr.Young,
i´m living nearby the Neuburg-Airfield. I.m retired and are looking to collect data reflecting the history of this airfield. So I found the 376bg page which is excellent designed. There are some airfotos
of Neuburg airfield during the Mission. Is it possible to get some Copies?

Thank you so much and have a nice time,
Best regards

376 ARCHIVES

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.

Donate directly to the 376 Endowment
