A week in history Aug. 13 - 19
B-17 Flying Fortresses from the 8th Air Force attacked ball bearing plants on the first of two raids on Schweinfurt, Germany, during World War II. During the mission, the 8th AF lost approximately 36 B-17s, including two from the 92nd Bomb Group. All 20 BG aircrew members survived being shot down and would later become prisoners of war.
