Re: 15th USAAF bombing raid of Bulgaria, 17 Jan. 1944?

To your question regarding Jan 17,44 mission over Bulgaria the answer is NO . However the 15th AF was on the air with 301st BG , 99th BG , 449th BG were on the air with max effort tied up in Italy bombing escorted by 3 fighter groups . The 450th missed the randezvous with the FG and had to jettison the bombs while ditching the mission . The 376th was on ground due IMC conditions . Bulgarian claims need to be carefully reviewed .

Hope that helps
