Mi Amigo flypast, memorial service touches millions

U.S. Air Force Colonel James Smith, RAF Menwith Hill Air Force Element Commander, prepares to lay a wreath in honor of the Mi Amigo crewmen at Sheffield, United Kingdom, February 24th, 2019. This year’s annual memorial service was accompanied by a United States Air Force and Royal Air Force flypast in Endcliffe Park two days prior, where thousands of U.K. residents honored the memory of ten fallen U.S. Airmen who died when their war-crippled B-17 Flying Fortress crash landed to avoid killing residents and nearby children.
