No. 17. Kassel, September 22, 1944:
7 hours 30 minutes flying time.
Bomb load 6, five-hundred pound GP bombs and 6, five-hundred pound IB.
Our target was the Tiger Tank Works (a pre-war Ford plant). No results were observed because of solid cloud coverage. There was heavy flak, but we got through untouched. The lead navigator was off course at the IP and took us over the town of Frankfurt.
