Starting with the Air Force Chronology for that day, for the 15th AF.
7 Aug 44
353 B-17’s and B-24’s bomb 2 synthetic oil refineries at Blechhammer; over 300 ftrs provide spt. 76 B-24’s hit Alibunar A/F and Novi Sad oil facilities.
HBs and ftrs claim nearly 30 aircraft shot down.
The photo you show references the 98th Bomb Group.
Tara Copp has a website for the 98th Bomb Group here: http://taracopp.smugmug.com/98th-Bombardment-Group-WWII
The is a collection of photos of many of the documents for the 98th BG. Since they are "photos" of documents it can be hard to search, you really need to know what you are looking for. Here is a link to a page which relates to the 7 Aug mission. it lists the planes that took part. http://www.taracopp.com/98th-Bombardment-Group-WWII/98th-BG-417-Missions/10651767_mBKFGP#!i=741126465&k=zyZZt&lb=1&s=X2
It is not clear to me if another Bomb Group also targeted Novi Sad that day, as the 98th only sent 28 planes to Novi Sad according to the list. It is possible that all the other planes making up the total 76 planes all bombed Alibunar, I don't know. I do know that of the four bomb groups in the 47th wing, the 449th and 450th bombed the airfield at Alibunar, so if any other group was involved, it would have been the 376th BG. (Added later, I was able to find the 376th mission list in the Internet Archives, they did not fly on 7 August, so it would appear it was only the 98th that bombed Novi Sad on that date.)
Also, I cannot find the 98th BG mission summary pages on her site for the 7 Aug mission. These summaries appear by date toward the bottom of the first page of her website. I can find the mission summary pages for the 9 Aug mission for example, but not the 7th. Perhaps they were misfiled. Maybe someone else has some ideas.
