Amazing tale of WWII pilot's encounter with German flying ace who saluted an American plane and let them fly safely instead of shooting them down | UPDATED: 18:25 GMT, 9 December 2012 An American bomber pilot was fighting for his life and they lives of his six wounded crew members when he tried desperately to keep the plane from nose-diving into German territory during World War II. Adding to his concerns, 2nd Lt. Brown feared a new threat when he spotted a German plane directly next to his plane, so close that the German pilot was looking him directly in the eyes and making big gestures with his hands that only scared Brown more.
