Burning oil storage tanks at Campina

''Campina near Ploesti, Rumania. 16 May 1944. Aerial view from a South African Air Force Mosquito aircraft shows the burning oil storage tanks at Campina, twenty miles northwest of Ploesti, a few hours after RAF Handley-Page Halifax and Vickers-Armstrong Wellington bomber aircraft had bombed the refinery and marshalling yards. Half an hour after this, 15th Army Air Force (USA) Consolidated B-24 Liberator bomber aircraft also attacked Campina railyards, hits being scored on a refinery, rolling stock and tank cars. Productive capacity of Ploesti refining system has been reduced to less than twenty five per cent of its normal output as a result of day and night attacks by Strategic Air Force.''
