At Wels, Austria, the Group had the new and pleasant experience of attacking an aircraft factory at which there was no flak. Neither were fighters seen on this mission. The lead navigator, Lt. Dusenberry, carefully kept the Group out of range of the heavily defended areas close to the target. The lead bombardier, Lt. Murphy, completely sprayed the target with incendiaries to give the lead pilots, Major Applegate and Lt. Specht, a superior mission.
