Operational Narrative.
  1. Date of Mission - 2 March, 1945.
    1. Target Attacked:  The secondary target at Chemnitz, Germany, was attacked by PFF with a visual assist.
    2. Force: 94th “B” Group. Thirty-eight aircraft, including four PFF ships and two flying spares, were dispatched.
    3. Position: The 94th “B” Group flew in its briefed position as the eighth group in the Division Formation on the route in to the target. It is believed that this was the second group in the withdrawal column.
    4. Lead Teams
      Group Lead
      Air Commander: Major Carl C. Hinkle, Jr
      Pilot:Captain Evan A. Poston
      Navigator:1st Lt. Albert W. Luich

      Navigator:F/O William L. Bateman Jr
      Bombardier:2nd Lt. William P. Hearn

      Low Squadron

      Pilot:2nd Lt. Gustav H. Bochert
      Navigator:2nd Lt. Rolland X. Madsen
      Bombardier:1st Lt. Jack P. Austin
  2. Narrative.
    1.  Squadron and Group Assembly: The assembly of the 94th “B” Group was carried out over the Kings Cliffe buncher at the briefed altitude of 7,500 feet. No difficulties, other than darkness, were encountered.
    2.  Route Over England: The formation departed the assembly area on time and on course. The turn at Crowland was made a little east of the briefed point, and the leg of the route from Crowland to Cambridge was flown to the left of, and parallel to, the briefed course. No difficulty was encountered by the 94th “B” Group in getting into the proper wing formation. Brentwood was reached on course and on time at the briefed altitude of 9,500 feet. The turn at Splasher #8 was cut short slightly in order to remain in the 94th Wing Formation and to arrive at the point of departure from the English coast, Dungeness, on time.
    3.  Division Assembly Line: The 94th “B” Group encountered no difficulties in the Division Assembly. Dungeness was departed at 0808 at the briefed altitude of 11,500 feet; and the flight across the channel followed the briefed route very closely. The French coast was crossed at the briefed point at the briefed altitude (11,500 feet) and one minute late (0817).
    4.  Flight to Target: The briefed route over the continent was followed with only minor deviations. Variances from the briefed course which did occur were the result of essing to avoid over-running the 94th “A” Group. Throughout the mission, the 94th “B” Group had some difficulty in remaining in formation behind the 94th “A”, and similarly, the 94th “C” experienced the same difficulty in over-running the 94th “B”. When first contacted, the Weather Scouting Force reported that the primary target was overcast, but that a visual run might be possible by the time the formation had reached the target. However, when a second report that the primary was overcast, was received, the 94th “A” Group decided to bomb the secondary, and the 94th”B” did likewise.
    5.  Description of Bombing Run: The 94th “A” Group overshot the IP [Initial Point of Bomb Run] which had been briefed for the secondary, and in order not to cut that group off on its bombing run, the 94th “B” also overshot the IP. However, the 94th “C” apparently made good its turn at the briefed IP, and produced the affect of the three groups converging on the secondary target almost simultaneously. A group from another combat wing added to the confusion as it approached the target from yet another angle. Bombing was done in group formation, with the lead ship making a PFF sighting with a visual assist. The C-1 Pilot [Autopilot] was not used. Prior to bombs away, the 94th “C” Group kept crowding the 94th “B” to the right, which forced the “B” Group to make a sharp left turn in order to compensate for drift which it had been unable to kill. The “C” Group, as well as the “A”, had bombed prior to the 94th “B”. The briefed turn at the IP had not been made.
    6.  Flight From Target: After the sharp left turn at the target, the 94th “B” Group proceeded to the briefed withdrawal route directly, as it could not have made the briefed turn to the right after the target without danger of running into other groups which were going on to bomb the primary target. On the withdrawal, the 94th “B” was proceeded [sic] by an unidentified group which had also bombed the secondary target, and followed by the other two groups of the 94th Combat Wing. The formation generally followed the briefed route, letting down to an altitude of 24,500 feet shortly after the target. Over France, the formation let down further due to the shortage of fuel experienced by most aircraft. The French coast was crossed at the briefed point at an altitude of 6,000 feet. The briefed point of entry into England was not used. Rather, a more direct course to base had been chosen in order to conserve fuel. The High and Low Squadrons went to their respective stand-off areas before landing. A normal let-down procedure had been followed.
    7.  Fighter Support: Good.
    8.  Comments: No aircraft were lost. No flak or enemy aircraft were encountered. Weather en route was seven to eight-tenths until 6° East, and from that point on, eight to ten-tenths cloud cover prevailed. The target area was covered by eight-tenths clouds. The Weather Scouting Force was contacted and furnished the necessary information.

      Four aircraft landed on the continent to refuel before proceeding to base. Three ships landed at other bases in England, two because of mechanical difficulties, and the other due to a fire in the tail section.
    9.  Aircraft Not Attacking: One aircraft failed to attack. The two scheduled flying spares returned as planned.

  [Signed] George H. Plaut, 1st Lt., Air Corps, Lead Bombardier
The turn at the I.P. could not be made as a preceding group (94th CBW "A") overshot the I.P. Halfway down the run a friendly group crossed in front of this group which gave us severe propwash. Just before "Bombs Away", 94th CBW "C" Group kept crowding us to the right which forced this group to make an extremely sharp left turn in order to compensate for drift which we were unable to kill.

Damage Assessment Report for Mission of this Date.
  1. The three squadrons of this group attacked as a secondary target the Railway Marshalling yard at Chemnitz, Germany. Photo cover is incomplete as clouds and haze obscure the target area.
  2. There is some ground detail visible from time to time during the bomb fall, but an accurate plot cannot be made. The target can be identified, and the smoke markers indicate that the main concentration will fall within the central part of the city, slightly south of the briefed MPI [Mean Point of Impact]. Damage should be heavy.
  [Signed:] Thomas L. Cooper, Captain, Air Corps, Group P.I. [Photo Intelligence]

Narrative Teletype Report:
  1. No leaflets were carried by this Group.
  2. The primary target, Bohlen, Germany, could not be bombed because of 10/10 cloud cover. The secondary, Chemnitz, was bombed in group formation by PFF with a visual assist just before bombs away. The Mickey [Radar] fix at bombs away puts the impact in the western built up area of the city. Photos show the target area obscured by clouds. No bursts are seen on the ground, but some ground detail identifies the target. Smoke markers indicate that the bombs will fall into the central city area.
  3. No E/A [Enemy Aircraft] were encountered and no claims [of enemy aircraft being shot down] are being submitted.
  4. Approximately 7 inaccurate bursts of flak were encountered in the target area. At the front lines near Kyllburg, there were about 8 bursts of which only two were accurate. In the Frankfurt area there were about 4 accurate bursts. On the way back from the target, there were 5 accurate bursts at Plauen, moderate flak was observed in the vicinity of Jena, and there were 6 fairly accurate bursts at Wiesbaden.
  5. Weather en route to the target was 7-8/10ths to 6 °E and then 8-10/10ths to the target and the target area was 8/10ths.
  6. Two vessels were observed at 5221 0248 and 5122 0249 at 1022 hours; they were awash and sunk with wreckage and oil slick in the vicinity. A rescue boat was nearby and a life raft was also visible. An SOS was sent by radio operator and receipted by MF/DF.
  7. Pathfinder units were employed for bombing and navigational aid. Three of the four sets worked well and the fourth set blew a fuse and tubes at take-off and was out for the remainder of the mission. Fighter support was good. The Scouting Force was heard from and was effective. Three of our a/c landed away from base; T-666 landed at Kimbolton because of fire in the tail, the crew is safe; Q-116 landed at Detling with two engines out, the crew is safe; G-862 landed at Alconbury with #4 engine out and the crew is safe. Two a/c, L-955 and P-907 landed at B-53 [Merville, France] because of shortage of fuel but has since refueled and returned to base.
