17 February 1945

The primary target for Mission No. 177 was the Schwechat Oil Refinery near Vienna. Because of an ordered delay in take-off due to weather over the Alps, the formation finally got off at 1110 hours. Due to the delay, the target of last resort, the shipyards at Trieste, Italy, became the primary target. The formation was led by Captain Roberts. A great deal of damage was done to the target but the pattern was scattered with the result that the mission was scored at 24.1 percent. A large war vessel which was in the harbor at the time was hit. This ship was later identified as the Italian battleship Cavour and attacked by the Royal Air Force.
