These are the strike photos for Group Mission #23 to Gydnia, Poland on Apr 9th, 1944.
The target for this raid was Fw-190 manufacturing plant in Gydnia. The Group was led by Lt Col. Henry Wilson. The weather cleared just as they approached the target. Bombing results were good. A number of planes from the 457th were shot down by enemy fighters, one crash landed at an English air base. The mission took over eleven hours. The approach from over the water and up a narrow peninsula is well documented here.
