This is a story of a Red Tail P-51 pilot shot down over Austria in a dogfight during the last days of WWII. The pilot was held for three days, awaiting transport to an interrogation center in Germany. On the third evening, two Luftwaffe officers showed up with false papers and the airman was released to their custody. The next morning he was found hanging from the lamp post. Presenter Jerry Whiting provides specific information on the airman and on the identification of the Luftwaffe officers who murdered him. He also discusses the situation in Austria at that time and the reasons this airman and many other airmen were murdered in Austria during the final days of WWII.
