War Journal - Sept. 17, 1944

Was put on alert today instead of getting a pass as expected. Was briefed to bomb Metz near Siegfrid Line but bad weather prevented taking off. The sky was black for about 2 hours at noon with C-47's and gliders going to Holland. Two of the gliders crashed near here so in the afternoon we flew the men from them back to their original base. I saw well over 2,000 planes today headed for Germany. Flew a training navigation mission at night. The nights here are so black you cannot see the horizon.
