Description: On Feb 23, 1945, the 398th Bomb Group Low Squadron Lead in A/C 44-8476 led by Major Jean Miller, 603rd Squadron and Captain Kenneth W. Beckstrom, 603rd Squadron hit Lichtenfels, Germany with 13 planes from 13,000 ft. as a "target of opportunity." Lichtenfels is about halfway between Frankfurt and Eger, Czechoslovakia (now called Cheb).
This photo shows the partial results of the bomb run on Lichtenfels. In this photo you can still see the smoke trail, which is now somewhat blown about by surface winds, and the smoke clouds from the bomb run. The bomb run and photographs were made from about 13,000 ft.
Not every bomb in the squadron has hit yet, though as it doesn't look like 155 bomb clouds. All but 4 were RDX.
