Lt. Covey and crew #15 “ Wichita Witch”


This was a primary night radar mission which was to the aircraft factory in Kobe, Japan. Results were excellent again as shown in radar pictures. The flak was moderate, we had damage to our ship but nothing serious however saw several planes but they stayed their distance and we did not get any shots at them.
