A touching story about a German pilot saving an American Pilot who was damaged and flying in the wrong direction.

Earlier today I watched a You Tube video of the actual event, I'm sure some of you have seen this one before. Still it's worth another look.

Eyes got a bit misty...You Tube Brown Stigler. He was a bf 109 pilot in World War II. There's two vids covering this guy. Amazing story.....

This was not today's episode, it was a touching story about gibbs father and a repressed memory he had about the events of that day.

The reason I pointed this out is because I watch this show religiously, when I saw your headline I wanted to know how you had watched an episode of a show when there wasn't one being aired that night. I was merely pointing out that was an earlier episode. And...if you had some Youtube videos to share why not post them?

There is a book by Adam Makos called "A Higher Call" that goes into detail about Charlie Brown and Franz Stieglers lives . It's about one of the best WWll books I've read.
One thing though, the B-17 wasn't going the wrong direction, Ye Ole Pub was badly crippled and trying to get back to England, Stiegler actually escorted them over German held territory and a little bit out into the channel.
It took Stiegler more guts NOT to pull the trigger and down the bomber, especially considering what the Gestapo would have done to him and his family if they had found out. I would highly reccomend the book if you have the time to read it.

On Direct TV there was the regular Tuesday night 8 PM Pacific Episode of NCIS. I had no sooner finished watching it when I made the thread directing to the actual event which was somewhat different than portrayed.

Regarding the You Tube video/s, I didn't "post it" because I don't know how to. I usually use my daughter to do it and she doesn't bother showing how it's done. In this case, she wasn't around.

Any other questions which have absolutely nothing to do with the thread's intent?

Thanks. I will keep an eye out for it in bookstores. There are some stunning books on events in WWII that really haven't received much attention, media or movie-wise.

One book that I'd highly recommend-but haven't seen since the '60s is The Admiral Scheer. A Pocket Battleship/heavy Cruiser that tied up whole British Squadrons in the Atlantic, S. Atlantic and Pacific for years. The allies never did get her at sea. Some of the stunts she pulled off are pretty cool, if one's objective about these things.

She gets some mention in the Jervis Bay saga, but that's about it.

Thanks for clearing that up, perhaps providing a link to the video would have sufficed...I did comment on the content in my first reply...could you try to be more factual in yours?

LOL, you still don't get it. My intent was not on the story line of NCIS. It was the on the fact that it was based on a factual event.

The usual artistic liberties were taken, IE., a P-51 instead of a B-17, the fact that the event was suppressed from the public to protect the German pilot and, above all, to acknowledge/honor him.

The rest isn't germane and you've either missed or ignored the gist of it.

It WAS a quick thread, being tired and old, and therefore not well thought out or edited.

I don't know how to do a link either. My bad, I suppose. Still, I'm not inclined to address that based on your criticisms whatsoever.

IMO, people such as yourself are a bane on real internet communication...not worth any further response.
