Kiel, 14.05 1943 Bombing Raid

Kiel, 14.05 1943 Bombing Raid

Mission #35 of the 303rd BG

Group aircraft flew in perfect formation to drop 61 1/2 tons of 500-lb. bombs on the target. The Germans made an attempt to conceal the target by the use of a smoke screen, but it proved to be ineffectual. Flak over the target at the 25,000 ft. bombing altitude was moderate and very little evasive action was necessary to avoid the bursts. Enemy air op...

Target on Ground, Nevada, US

Target on Ground, Nevada, US

Found this neat target on the ground close to two cruise missiles that can be seen when you scroll further west. If you go north from here you can see a second target, which is a bit larger.

Enjoy! -TeAtEam-

Target on building

Target on building

Saw this target on top of a building while looking around O'Hare in Chicago. I checked to see if this is a Target Dept. store, but it doesn't show up as one.
