Google Earth Plug-in: 461st BG (H), Mission 204, Graz Marshalling Yards

30 March 1945

Target: Graz Marshalling Yard, Austria

Mission No. 204 on the 30th of the month was a four plane "lone wolf' mission with the Vienna North Marshalling Yard as the primary target. Finding that the weather over the Alps was much better than had been briefed, Lt. Miller, who had taken over the lead, decided to abandon the primary target and to hit the marshalling yard at Graz as an alternate target. Using visual means the small formation dropped its bombs with excellent results. Three of the four planes were hit by flak but all returned to base.

STRATEGIC OPERATIONS (Fifteenth Air Force):
In Austria, 60+ B-17s and B-24s bomb the Vienna N stations and goods depot, the Graz and Klagenfurt marshalling yards, the Kapfenberg tank works, and several minor targets of opportunity; 28 P-38s and P-51s sweep the Zagreb, Yugoslavia-Graz, Austria area and others fly reconnaissance.
