Archive footage: Luftwaffe Pilots Surrender To Americans

Interesting footage reportedly from May 1945, shows German Luftwaffe pilots landing FW190 and Stuka warplanes at an American airbase to surrender at the end of WWII.


Surrendering to the Americans rather than the Russians was probably an easy choice, considering they would be fed at some point during their detention.
