A military historian believes he’s solved one of the longest-standing Second World War mysteries during research into a bomber plane that crashed into a Sheffield park in 1944.

Paul Allonby has been researching the events of the day the B-17 ‘Mi-Amigo’ Flying Fortress crash-landed in Endcliffe Park, killing its crew of 10.

He has unearthed documents which he believes identify the German fighter pilot responsible for doing the damage that caused the plane to crash. He plans to put his findings into a book once research is complete.
