Up at 7:00 this morning and was at the machine shop at 8:00. We got them started on the 3 of them and then got our cameras ready to take off after lunch. I go at 2:00 with the CO & am supposed to photo the bombs away & bomb hits.Got my parachute back from the rigger & it was OK after trip across. Was at the plane at 2:00 & at 3:15 was notified it was the real thing and I was to go on a mission. I loaded my cameras into another ship then after 1/2 hour it was called off on account of visibility at the target. Perhaps tomorrow will see it through.
