Event description

Description

In this illustrated talk, Sqn Ldr Barry Darwin tells the story of Mi Amigo.

On 22 Feb 1944, 60 B-17 ‘Flying Fortress’s’ embarked on a mission to bomb Aalborg in Denmark. Two were destined not to return to their base - one lost at sea and the other crashing in Sheffield’s Endcliffe Park. Many would witness the aircraft as it circled the park at roof level, and many more, the terrible pall of smoke that later drifted into the sky.
