Dear Mr. Klaus,
Thank you for posting your request to History Hub!
We searched the World War II Combat Operations Reports, 1941-1946 (also called Mission Reports) in RG 18 and located the file unit listings for the 44th Bomb Group (1942 & 1943); the 93rd Bomb Group (1942 & 1943); and the 389th Bomb Group (1943 only). Sometimes the title of the file units includes the target of the mission.
Instead of looking at the mission reports, you may want to look at the histories for each bomb group. Unit histories and supporting documents of Army Air Force units are in the custody of the Air Force Historical Research Agency (AFHRA), 600 Chennault Circle, Building 1405, Maxwell Air Force Base, AL 36112-6424. You should call (334) 953-2395 or write to that office for further information concerning these records. The web site is https://www.afhra.af.mil/.
Since some of the histories have been microfilmed, please use the index to the Air Force History microfilm available at https://www.airforcehistoryindex.org/. If the IRISREF number begins with A, B or C, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at email@example.com for copies or access to the rolls. Any other letter or number, please contact AFHRA as indicated above.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
