Summary: The 401st furnished three squadrons comprising the 94th Combat Wing (C) Group. The primary target, a tactical target in Wesel, Germany, was to be bombed only by visual sighting. As cloud cover foreclosed that possibility, the Group bombed the secondary target at Dulmen by Gee-H means, with no results observed or photographed. No enemy air opposition or flak were encountered.
