Event was inspired by Tony Foulds, 82, who has tended their memorial since 1944
Thousands have gathered in Sheffield to watch the US air force stage a flypast to commemorate 10 plane crew who died during the second world war.
People travelled from around the world for the flypast, including military veterans and family members of personnel killed on the B-17 Flying Fortress aircraft, known as Mi Amigo.
Just met an amazing man in Endcliffe Park, Sheffield. Tony Foulds was an 8-yr-old playing in the park when a US plane crashed in Feb 1944. He has diligently maintained the memorial ever since. He was planting new flowers. Almost 75 yrs of service. What a man. I’m in bits pic.twitter.com/DpdDmSZ0F3
