Flypast honors US bomber crew who died saving British kids

Tony Foulds sits next to a memorial honouring 10 U.S. airmen who died in a plane crash in Endcliffe Park, Sheffield, England, Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019. Foulds was just a kid running around in the park on Feb. 22, 1944 when a U.S. Air Force crew decided to crash and die rather than take the chance of hitting them. He’s dreamed of honoring them for decades. Now he’s 82 and about to get his wish. (AP Photo/Rui Vieira) STH109 STH109

Limping back to England after a raid, a B-17 needed to land, but the pilot saw children in the park in Sheffield. He chose to crash in woods, sparing the children. One of those kids is now 82 and still grateful. He's arranged an aerial honor for the 10 American airmen.  VIEW
