Airfield, Nancy, France

Mission # 6
May 25, 1944

Today we went to Nancy, France. Time 7 hours and 30 minutes. We hit an airfield and they did a beautiful job. Bombs covered the field and buildings. Today is Capt. Gustoves last mission as our first pilot. I hope our co-pilot Lt. Jack Falkenbock takes over.
