Germany - A huge explosion reaches skyward from the area near the I.G. Farbendustrie chemical plant in the river front district at Ludwigshaven as one of the attacking Boeing B-17 flying fortresses of the US 8th AAF roars overhead on may 27 1944. Resulting fires spread unhampered over a large area. Smoke to the right is from hits scored on a nearby marshalling yard.
