Tony Foulds, 82, waves from Endcliffe Park in Sheffield, as warplanes from Britain and the United States stage a joint flypast tribute to ten US airmen Friday Feb. 22, 2019, 75-years after Foulds witnessed the crash that killed them. Foulds was just a child playing 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 the playing children. For decades Foulds has tended a memorial dedicated to honouring the 10 U.S. airmen who died in the plane crash at Endcliffe Park, and today the flypast fulfils his wish for the men who saved his life.
