World War II Pilot Returns to Germany to Look for His Wings Buried While He Was a POW - Video 9/12/09


Here is a video report on a World War II Pilot who was shot down over Germany in July 1944 and taken captive. While being held in a cellar outside Berlin, Bernerd Harding took his wings off his uniform and buried them in a corner of the cellar to prevent the Germans from knowing he was the pilot of a plane.

Now, at age 90, he returns to Germany to look for those wings. He did not find the wings, but he brought back something else for another family.
