A week in history Aug. 27 – Sept. 2

The 92nd Bombardment Group arrived at Bovingdon Airdrome, the second complete group to arrive in the United Kingdom. This was the first group to fly non-stop from Newfoundland to Scotland and the first notable acts by the 92nd BG occurred on their trans-Atlantic flight. The 326th Bomb Squadron was first, followed by the 325th, 327th and 407th Bomb Squadrons. Many detailed plans were formulated including contingencies for mechanical or personnel problems. Out of a force of 32 aircraft, only two had to land in Greenland due to problems. The final squadron arrived on Aug. 28, 1942, making the 92nd BG the second complete group to arrive in the British Isles (Courtesy Photo)
