WW2 German Pilot Escorts US Bomber

WW2 German Fighter Pilot Escorts American Bomber To Safety -- Bf 109 pilot Franz Stigler and B-17 pilot Charlie Brown's first meeting -- This never-before-seen film was taken when JG 27 Bf-109 ace Franz Stigler met American 379th Bomb Group B-17 pilot Charlie Brown for the first time since their encounter during World War II! In the video, Franz describes how his Bf 109 approached Charlie's heavily damaged B-17F "Ye Olde Pub", why he didn't shoot them down, and the incredible emotions behind meeting on this day, some 47 years later. After watching this video be sure to check out the upcoming book "A Higher Call," that tells the true story, for the first time ever, of Franz Stigler, Charlie Brown, and their wartime experiences!
