487th The Sesto Calende railroad bridge was the target for eighteen of our ships this morning. The huge formation was over the target shortly after nine o'clock dropping their bombs with precision accuracy. Direct hits were scored on the bridge itself and both approaches were damaged. Enemy opposition was non-existent and all planes returned safely to the base.
