Last Flight to Berlin: The Search for a Bomber PilotHistory|2009|46:49|PG
This very personal and moving film documents filmmaker Robert Linnell's attempt to make sense of his father's death in combat during World War II. Linnell never knew his father. His father never knew him. Robert was but two-months-old when his father Lloyd Linnell, the pilot of a heavy bomber, was shot down in the night skies over Germany in 1944. Sixty years later Linnell, the son, sets off on a quest to honor the memory of his father, to document his war story on film, and to visit the very place where he died. Little did he know that his quest would end in a face-to-face meeting with the German fighter pilot who shot down his father's plane.
