Mission #4 - May 19, 1943
The Group Air Exec, Major Ready, flew as observer in the lead aircraft as the 96th dispatched 23 planes. The target was the Flensberger-Schifferbau marine ship building yards and sub-pens near the Danish border. In spite of 4 aborts, the target was severely damaged. E/A activity, restricted to between 20-25 fighters, harassed the Wing but, in general was ineffective.
