The 668th BS (Light) was formed on January 25, 1943 and was assigned to the 416th BG from February 5, 1943 to October 11, 1945. In January 1944 the 416th BG moved to England as part of the 9th Air Force and entered combat in March 1944 attacking V1 sites in France. In June of 1944 strikes in aid of the Normandy invasion began and continued throughout the war. The first 9th AF A-20G to complete 100 missions over occupied France was #43-9224, “La France Libre”

The A-20 Havoc was an American light bomber, attack and night fighter aircraft operated by the USAAF and Allied air forces during World War II. It was known as the Douglas Boston in Great Britain’s Royal Air Force and Royal Australian Air Force and as the DB-7 in Soviet and French Air Forces. The night fighter variant was designated P-70. The A-20 prototype was first flown in January 1939 with the first production aircraft flying on August 17, 1939. Although it was not the fastest or longest-range aircraft in its class, the A-20/DB-7 series distinguished itself as a tough and dependable combat aircraft. Production ran until September 1944 with 7,478 built in several variants (7,098 by Douglas and 380 by Boeing), almost half of which was delivered to the Soviet Union. The A-20 was retired by the U.S. Air Force in 1949.
