Summary: The 401st furnished the Lead and Low Boxes of the 94th Combat Wing "B" formation. Visual bombing was possible, and as a result the Group "blanketed the MPI and the target area" with its incendiary bombs.
No enemy aircraft were encountered, but moderate and accurate flak caused major battle damage to two aircraft and minor damage to ten others. U. S. fighter support was reported excellent.
