Sample text

The Belgians had recent bad experiences with the American Eighth Air Force trying to hit Erla works in Mortsel, a suburb of Antwerp. On April 5, six bomb groups unloaded their bombs over this aircraft repair facility. Poor bombing resulted in more than 900 civilian casualties and no damage to the works. Amsterdam was hit heavily on July 17, when two bomb groups on their first mission again hit residential areas, instead of the Fokker aircraft factory. More than 180 civilians died. Finally, Flushing had received part of the bombs intended for its airfield only four days before this day’s mission, on August 15.

The Germans, however, must have sighted them too, for they also climbed, and a fight ensued with only 800 feet of altitude in advantage of the Typhoons. Soon after the fight broke out, Ireson called over the radio for the wing to withdraw. Proper contact was not made and 181 and 247 Squadron left the area independently, but unscathed. A worse fate befell Ireson’s own 182 Squadron. It had contributed two flights of three planes each to the mission. Ireson led Red Flight, Flight Lt. Geoffrey Ball Blue Flight.

Here again, some bomb groups bore the brunt of the German fighter attacks. The 100th Bomb Group lost ten ships; the 390th Bomb Group, on only its third combat mission, lost six. The main feature of this attack on Regensburg was that the participating bombers did not return to England after dropping their load over the target. They continued on course, flying south over the Alps, over the Mediterranean, and finally landed on fields in North Africa. The majority of these bombers and their crews did not return to their English bases before August 24, when they bombed the Bordeaux/Merignac airfield on the way back.
