Date of Mission - 19 March, 1945.
- Target Attacked: The secondary target (No. 2 - Visual, No. 3 - H2X) at Plauen, Germany, was attacked by H2X methods.
- Force: 94th “C” Group. Thirty-eight aircraft, including four H2X aircraft and two flying spares, were dispatched.
- Position: The 94th “C” Group flew in its briefed position as the ninth group in the Division Column for the majority of the route to the target. Interference from
another group, however, is believed to have put it out of its proper position shortly before reaching the target area.

Squadron and Group Assembly: The take-off was delayed forty-five (45) minutes. The lead aircraft took off and flew inside of the briefed route over England
in order to ensure arriving at the assembly point, A-39 [Châteaudun, France], in plenty of time to assemble the group. The flight to the assembly area was made
individually. No difficulties were encountered.
Route Over England: The deputy lead aircraft had arrived at the assembly area ahead of the lead aircraft, and the Lead Squadron had started forming on the
deputy ship. The lead aircraft took its proper position in the formation and completed the assembly without difficulty. The briefed arrival time at the buncher was
set for 1040. The lead aircraft reached that point at 1018 at the briefed height of 8,000 feet. Departure from the assembly area was made at 1120, two minutes early,
at the briefed altitude.
Division Assembly Line: The Division Assembly Line was flown with little variance. Other groups were seen approaching from the south and it is believed
that all groups were in position before the end of the assembly line was reached. The climb was made faster than briefed in order to have good altitude when the front
lines were crossed. The 94th “C” Group Leader desired sufficient altitude to permit him to stay above the 94th “B” Group. Control Point #1 was passed to the right of
course in Division Column at an altitude of 21,000 feet, 5,000 feet above the briefed height, and in position behind the 94th “B”. Some difficulty was encountered from
contrails, and the increase in altitude was necessary in order to avoid them as much as possible.
Flight to Target: The 94th “C” Group flew echeloned to the right on the 94th “B” Group. When the formation reached the portion of the route which took it
to the north of Frankfurt, the 94th “C” found that it was being crowded toward the Frankfurt flak by the 94th “B”. In order to avoid this, it crossed to the left of
the 94th “B” north of Frankfurt without interfering with any other formation. After getting into position on the left of the 94th “B”, the 94th “C” paralleled the
briefed route. No further difficulty was encountered until the 40th “A” Group started to fly on the left of the 94th “C”, thus sandwiching it between two groups. VHF
[Very High Frequency (Radio)] conversation resulted in the 40th “A” Group falling back into its proper slot behind the 94th “C” Group. In the vicinity of
50°22’N - 10°49’E, the formation flew to the right of the briefed course in following the Division Column. On this leg, the contrails became increasingly wore
and hindered formation flying. Further difficulty was encountered when a composite group of the 41st Combat Wing approached from the north and cut across the
route of the 94th “C” Group. This necessitated taking up a southerly heading temporarily and is believed to have put the 94th “C” Group out of its proper position
in the Division Column. After regaining its previous heading, the 94th “C” did not see or contact the 94th “B” for the remainder of the mission. Sword fish Able
and Buckeye Red reported that the No. 1 target could not be attacked because of the dense haze and persistant [sic] contrails. The Group Leader then made the decision
to attack the No. 2 target at Plauen, Germany. In order to do this, the group stayed to the right of the briefed course and established an IP [Initial Point of
the Bomb Run] at 50°30’N - 13°00’E. This point was reached at an altitude of 27,000 feet, 2,500 feet above the altitude planned for the briefed IP. Such an increase
was necessary in order to avoid contrails, which, even at that altitude, caused the formation a great deal of trouble. The mickey [radar] sets in the lead aircraft
of each of the three squadrons were found to be inoperative for bombing. The lead aircraft, after establishing the IP and taking up the proper heading for the target,
allowed the deputy lead aircraft to take over the lead position.
Description of Bombing Run: The No. 3 target was attacked. Bombing was done in group formation, all aircraft dropping on the deputy lead (then lead)
aircraft, which used its H2X equipment. The briefed turn was not made at the IP, but an alternate IP was selected, as previously indicated. The target was
completely overcast. High cirrus clouds and contrails prohibited flying a good formation. The Low Squadron, particularly, was strung out. The C-1 Pilot [Autopilot]
is reported as having functioned satisfactorily.
Flight From Target: After bombing, the formation started a let-down to 22,000 feet. The briefed route into the target was paralleled until the briefed
withdrawal route was contacted at 50°28’N - 09°51’E. Other groups approached the briefed route from the right and were followed on the withdrawal. In staying in
column, the formation flew to the right of the briefed course. The front lines were crossed at an altitude of 20,000 feet. Shortly afterwards, the lead aircraft
took over the lead position from the deputy, and gradually led the formation towards the briefed route to the left. Cycle Relay [a radio relay station] was
contacted and advised letting down to 5,000 feet at the French coast and proceeding to base between the cloud layers. As the entire formation was low on gas,
the Group Leader informed those aircraft which could not reach base to land on the continent at B-53 [AAF-182 Merville, France]. Before departing from the French
coast, the Squadron Leaders were told to lead their respective formation to base. Departure from the French coast was made at an altitude of 5,000 feet. A let-down
to 4,500 feet was made at mid-channel, but it was necessary to climb again in an unsuccessful attempt to get over a squall encountered off the English coast. This
succeeded in dispersing those aircraft left in the formation. The English coast was crossed to the left of the briefed point and at an altitude of 5,000 feet. The
aircraft did not follow the briefed route due to lack of gasoline. Let-down from 5,000 feet was made individually and landings were made at base.
Fighter Support: Good. Appeared as briefed.
Comments: No enemy aircraft were encountered. The only flak encountered was at Bingen, where there were four to six bursts, good for height and fair
for deflection. Seven to eight tenths clouds with heavy persistent contrails were encountered en route and over the target area. The Weather Scouting Force was
contacted and it accurately transmitted weather conditions prevailing in the target area. Two aircraft from other groups (91st and 306th) bombed with the 94th “C”.
Aircraft Landing Elsewhere: Five aircraft refueled and remained over night at B-53 [AAF-182 Merville, France], two at Matching, and one each at Manston and Stanstead. All have since
returned to base.
Aircraft Not Attacking: There were two failures to attack. The two flying spares returned to base as planned.

Narrative Teletype Report:
- No leaflets were carried by this Group.
The three squadrons of this group formed the 94th “C” CBW and bombed by PFF methods off the smoke markers of the Deputy Lead A/C, lead squadron, when a temporary
failure of mickey [radar] equipment occurred in the lead A/C [Aircraft], lead squadron as well as total black-out of returns on the scopes of the lead A/C in the
high and low squadrons. Our target was the center of the industrial area in Plauen, Germany. The Mickey operator estimates bomb impact to be a little SE of the
briefed MPI [Mean Point of Impact].
No E/A [Enemy Aircraft] were encountered and no claims [of enemy aircraft being shot down] are being submitted.
The only flak encountered was at Bingen, where there were from four to six bursts good for height and fair for deflection.
7 to 8/10 clouds with heavy persistent con-trails were encountered en route and over the target area. These weather conditions exclude any chance for photo coverage
of bombing results.
There are no observations of military importance.
The PFF units in the lead A/C of the High and Low squadrons went out before the target; the mickey equipment in the lead A/C, lead squadron, temporarily failed and
bombing was done on the set of thee deputy lead A/C, lead squadron, which worked well. Fighter support was good and appeared as briefed. The Scouting Force was
contacted by this group and it accurately transmitted weather conditions prevailing in the target area. An A/C from the 91st and the 306th Bomb Groups bombed with
this group. Our A/C L-955, X-579, U-813, and H-280 are unaccounted for but are believed to have landed on the Continent. Our A/C T-666 and F-566 have landed at
Matching, England. Our A/C G-954 has landed at Manston, England. Our A/C O-435 has landed at Standstead, England. A/C A-410 landed at B-53 [AAF-182 Merville,
