The Bombing of Frankfurt

October 4, 1943 ..................

On October 4, 1943 the 8th AF conducted it's 1st Bombing raid on Frankfurt. this Realism event will Recreate this WWII 8th AF Bombing Mission #108. 2 groups bombed Frankfurt with a total Combined 155 B-17's. the 91st Bomb Group was a Participant in this 1st mission to Frankfurt. 8 bombers were lost with 80 bombers damaged upon Returning to Base.

the following is from a Mission report filed after the 322nd Squadrons debriefing .....

Bomb Load: 42 x 100 IBs

Bombing Results: Good

Bombing Altitude: 26,000

Time: Takeoff 0730. Over target 1110. Landed 1620.

A. A. Fire - Moderate accurate fire at target, meager

inaccurate fire enroute and home from the target.

Enemy Opposition: Up to 150 S/E and 75 T/E A/C were

encountered. Enemy employed rockets which were fired

at our A/C at a distance beyond the range of our guns.

Rockets might prove very effective unless we can

increase the range of our fire or have long range

escorts who are capable of keeping these rocket firing

E/A entertained. Long range P-47 escort was very

effective as was the Spit escort which covered

stragglers from the Dutch coast.

Although we can not replicate all the actual Aircraft used, we can recreate the mission.

I'll take a DB-7 for any group. If sign-ups are done and no one volunteers for flight commander, then I'll do it. Otherwise, just put me as regular bomber.

oh, one other thing - i suggest if you have "walk ons" place them as infantry down in the target area for fun :D make it bonus points for killing them on allied side, bonus points for surviving on axis side :)

My fighter skills suck, but a bad defender is better than no defender!

Stick me in an Axis fighter wing.
