Ploesti low level mission
I am trying to find out some information about the B- 24 bomb groups and squadrons that flew in the first low-level bomb raid over Ploesti on Aug 1 1943.I have done some reading and it appears that B-24s from the 8th and 9th Air Forces were involved. I have seen references to the 98th Bomb Group and the 376th Bomb Group.
Are there crew lists available on the www?
My father flew on the low level bombing runs and I would like to know which bomb group and squadron he flew with.
I have an oral history from him of his service but he did not include the specifics of which AirForce, Bomb Groups, or Squadrons.My father went from Europe to the Pacific with B-29s.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
