461st BG (H), Mission 176, Rosenheim – Kolbermoor Marshalling Yards

16 February 1945

On 16 February the Group finally came through with a superior bombing mission when Major Baker led a large formation against the Rosenheim West Marshalling Yard in Germany. A concentrated pattern of bombs fell across the East half of the small marshalling yard with many hits on freight cars, through tracks, and the choke point. With CAVU weather and no flak the formation returned to base without having sustained any damage.
