The estimated altitude of raid or the bombing from alritude? I'd have said the bombing from.

Estimated time to target is 4 minutes

6 x B-25C Mitchell bombing from 12000 feet

I read it in this way: bombers arrived at 12k feet. The escort was probably between 14k and 15k feet. The incoming raid altitude is always mistaken imho

I think the word "estimated" says it all, especially if these are visual estimates.
