Flypast For WW2 US Bomber Crash Crew – watch the video and the amazing aircrafts

A flypast honouring 10 American airmen who died when their plane crashed in a park 75 years ago has taken place in Sheffield.

The US bomber came down in Endcliffe Park, Sheffield on 22 February 1944, killing everyone on board.

A campaign for a flypast started after a chance meeting between BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker and Tony Foulds, who tends a park memorial.

A perfect encounter because Tony has had his dream come true following the WW2 experience.
