Robert J. Weichhand Mission March 21, 1945

March 21, 1945


This was the first day of Spring and as usual, Adolf got his greetings. This time at the Jet Propelled (ME-262) Airdome at Newburg. Our ship carried 240_ 20 lb. bombs, fragmentation bombs. They were in clusters of six. Ten planes to a box. Two wings went over the target, so between 60 and 70,000 bombs were dropped on the field. They looked like confetti falling out. We must have knocked out a lot of ships. I don’t see how we could have missed. Out bombing alt.was 23,500. I flew R.G.M. on this trip. Ship 87, so I did not see the hits. I do not like to fly R.C.M. so I hope I can get out. Take off was 07:25 - Target 1202 - and landing 1525 for a total of 8 hrs. We saw no flak. Fighters were reported, but we had 50-P-51s. So we weren’t too worried.


The website 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
