27 December, 1944
Target: Venzone Viaduct, Italy
On 27 December Captain Roberts led a five flight formation to North Italy where the Venzone Viaduct was bombed visually. The planes carrying 1000 pound bombs, bombed by flights. The main pattern of bombs fell on the west side of the viaduct where direct hits and near misses were scored. The scattered patterns of the various boxes clearly demonstrated that practice bombing was sorely needed.
