Five of the 67th planes departed this base at 1030 hours to attack the Orleans/Bricy Airfield in France. No flak was encountered; bombing was accomplished by G-H equipment, results unobserved. All planes of the Group returned at 1630 hours. Two PFF ships of the 66th were sent to assist the 492nd, but one returned early due to the bad weather, not finding the formation. Capt. Craig and crew was transferred to the 66th Squadron - to the regret of his crew chief, S/S&t. F. Chowanski. Capt. King, from the 66th was assigned to the 67th - a swap!
