Target: Okayama

Lt. Buechler and crew #22 “Nippon Nipper III”


This was another Industrial Urban Target and was another successful night radar mission. We had little flak on this mission, no planes. My radar set went out before we reached the mainland of Japan. I worked on it and fixed it in time to complete my bomb run.
