B-25s of 321st BG bombing bridge

This photograph from the the 321st Bombardment Group's post-war 'Headlines' pamphlet shows an example of precision bombing, with the bombs from the first flight of three aircraft hitting a bridge just as the second flight of three passes over it. The 321st 'paced the Wing in accuracy for seven consecutive months in 1944' according to the original caption.

This document comes from a pamphlet produced by the 321st Bombardment Group after the war, which told the story of the group's activities from 15 March 1943-15 March 1945 in the form of a newspaper.

Many thanks to Christine Stewart for sending us this document, which came from the collection of her father in law Eugene W. Stewart, a staff sergeant in transportation with the 321st Bombardment Group.
