92nd Bombardment Group of the 8th Air Force

Near Bedford, England

The attached photo is of Lt. James F Kromphardt - Navigator and Bombardier - and the crew from sqd. 407 (front row at the furthest right) in front of their B-17.  The 92nd's motto was "Fames Favored Few."  Lt . Kromphardt was in the Skoda Air Raid mission on April 25, 1945.  He was in the lead plane  for their squadron working the bombsite.  The mission was a success - only losing one aircraft - and not only took out the Skoda facility, which was then being used to build arms for the Germans. but also wiped out the Pilsen brewing company, when it became a "target of opportunity."
