Re: Air route of USAAF Bomber "Operation Gomorrah"

Seeker -
This is from a Mission Report and Mission Route
in Book: Shades of Kimbolton 379th BG.
July 25th , 1943 Mission.
1st AD Groups formed up over The Wash in England.
They flew NE to a Point over North Sea. Turned
SE and passed just NE of Heligoland - coming under
constant LW Fighter attacks. They crossed the German
Coast at Cuxhaven and continued to a Point SW of
Hamburg , Rosengarten. Turned NE and Bombed Hamburg.
Lead Navigator noted Target obscured by Smoke and
Bombed using Checkpoints.
Formation proceeded NE and then turned NW , Bad Odesloe.
They Crossed the Kiel Canal and over Welt , Eiderstedt turned
West to a Point over North Sea , then SW to England.
I used a New Map of Gemany to help pinpoint locations from
Mission Map.
