What a day this has been! The support of the Soviet Armies continued with a heavy attack on the vital Marshalling Yards at Bucharest, Rumania. Twenty-eight aircraft from this Group were over the target and dropped 70 tons of general purpose bombs. Our results were good but we paid a heavy price. Seven of out planes were lost to the enemy fighters. The fighters hit one box from the 719th Squadron and accounted for five of the six planes in the box. None of our losses are worth a “Gruppe” from the Luftwaffe but since we had to take the losses it is comforting to know the boys took forty enemy fighters and it was warm outside.
