461st BG (H), Mission 51, City of Bucharest on Pathfinder

Description: 28 June 1944

With the intentions of cutting the railroad lines connecting Bucharest and Ploesti, the Air Force again assigned the Chitila Marshalling Yard at Bucharest to the Group as a target. As has been the case on many of the missions which Colonel Glantzberg had led, poor weather hindered the success of the mission. A great deal of bad weather was experienced en route to the target area. The weather cleared at the target, but there was an intense haze. Instead of bombing the Marshalling Yards visually, the Group bombed the City of Bucharest by pathfinder. Although there was a great deal of flak in the target area, the Group escaped without much damage. One man was injured, and three airplanes were damaged. Twenty-four enemy aircraft were seen and several were encountered. One of those was destroyed and two were listed as probables. Colonel Glantzberg, just back from England, led the formation. Bucharest traditions prevailed: bad weather, plenty of heavy and accurate flak, and not especially good bombing.
