Mission 48

May 30, 1943    Our target today was the Pomigliano airdrome at Naples. All four groups went out. We and the second took care of the airdrome while the 97th and 99th plastered the docks and shipping. We've gone to Naples twice and both times it has been on Sunday. It must be shell-shocking to those poor devils to have thousands of pounds of bombs dropped on them.    There wasn't much opposition except for a little flak and a few fighters. All planes got back.    I led our second element with Allison as my co-pilot.

    It took seven hours and 25 minutes to make the trip.
