Highest Group loss in Eighth Air Force history


(Extracts from a publication issued by the Kassel Mission Memorial Association)


On Wednesday 27th September 1944, thirty seven B-24’s belonging to the 445 BG (based at Tibbenham) were sent on a mission to bomb Kassel.  Thirty aircraft were lost on this single mission which is a record loss for any Eighth Air Force Group.
