Mission No. 90
10 Jun 1944
Station: 166
Target: Nav. Beam Station at La Pernelle; Coastal Defense Battery and Radar Station at Aigremont., France
Thirty-eight aircraft were sent on this mission.
Visibility was poor, and even from a bombing altitude of 7000 feet, bombardiers picked up suitable Aiming Points only with difficulty.
Of the two flights which attacked the Navigational Beam Station, one had fair results interpreted from the strike photos, and the other reported excellent bombing.
A Third could not locate a suitable aiming point after two runs at the target.
One flight attacked the Aigremont coastal defense battery with fair results, obtaining a probable hit on the light flak position.
One flight attacked the radar station with excellent results, a concentrated pattern of bombs on the desired aiming point and probable hits on three light anti-aircraft positions and on a trench.
Results of the bombing by the sixth flight were unknown.
A total of fifty-five 2000-pound bombs was dropped on these targets.
There were no losses, casualties, or battle damage.
