US Airmen saved him, now Tony Foulds wants them honored
SHEFFIELD, England (AP) - Tony Foulds has a routine when he visits the memorial for 10 American airmen killed in World War II.
First, he kisses his finger and lays it on the metal plate bearing their names. He feels immense guilt. He says simply: "I killed them."
Foulds believes the young Americans sacrificed their lives to save his when the pilot decided not to land his crippled plane in Endcliffe Park, in the British city of Sheffield, to avoid a group of children on the grass.
Tony has long dreamed of public recognition of the sacrifice of the B-17G Flying Fortress nicknamed "Mi Amigo." He wanted an aerial display - a flypast.
On Friday, he will get his wish. The U.S. and the Royal Air Force are set to honor Lt. John G. Kriegshauser and his crew.
