Facts

Frankfurt. 816 aircraft, 33 losses (4.0%). An indirect route, in addition to a diversionary raid on Kiel kept fighters away for some time and in fact the German controller believed that Frankfurt was the target. Marking and bombing were accurate and Frankfurt was again badly damaged right across the city. 948 deaths and 346 seriously injured. Some 120000 people were bombed out of their homes.
Reason for Loss: Crashed at Marbais, Belgium on return leg
