On 6188 (686) – map reference) in Śródmieście, about one hundred containers, most with armaments. There are still no reports from Mokotów, Żoliborz and Czerniakow.
Operation flaws of drops: 1) high altitude – parachutes undergo several layers of different air currents. 2) Direct drops from the flight path without recognizing the drop signals, hence very limited drop precision. 3) The drops are carried out by very large aircraft which are difficult to maneuver which means uneven coverage (of drops).
Further details to follow.
