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.
