|10 June 1944 |
On the 6th of June many of the groups in the Fifteenth Air Force had gone to Ploesti. On the 10th of June, the Air Force resumed its policy of bombing the enemy sources of oil supply. Our mission was against the oil refinery of Porto Marghera, Italy. The 765th Squadron Bombardier, Lt. Murphy, found the target for the other bombardiers who turned in an excellent score of 44 percent on this important target. Not too much flak was encountered and no enemy aircraft were seen.
Nice shinning B-24 Liberator flies through the picture.
