Last Operation Information
|Night (59% moon)
|Mannheim. 395 aircraft, 23 losses (5.8%). This was one of the larger diversionary raids and accounts for the high losses. By comparison, the main raid (On Berlin) registered 2.0% losses. There was cloud cover over the target and bombing was scattered as a result. Most of the damage fell to the north of the town, where the Daimler Benz car plant suffered a 90% loss in production as a result. 21 deaths on the ground and 7500 people were bombed out.
|Reason for Loss
|Shot down by Major Helmut Weinreich of Stab/JG 301, flying an Fw 190 A-5 from Frankfurt – Rhein-Main airfield. His aircraft was severely damaged by return fire and he was later killed when attempting to force-land his aircraft at Frankfurt – Rhein-Main airfield.
