January 15, 1945
This was not one of my missions - but since the navigator and bombardier were scheduled for a week of missions that were cancelled because of bad weather and then scratched – I’ll put it in. The mission took off at 8:50 - landed (what was left) at 4:30. The target was Vienna Austria - one of our worst targets. Out of the seven planes we sent out - only three returned. #98 with McKinneys crew went down over Vienna. #91 and #93 took off for Russia to force land. Maybe they made it. Fox on Lt. Taylor’s crew was flying #98. A bad day. Hope we don’t draw Vienna in the near future.
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.
