On `Black Friday`, 9th February 1945, Heinz Orlowski was shot down in his Focke Wulf 190 by two RAF Mustangs while on convoy escort duty over Norway. As the young Luftwaffe pilot desperately struggles with a malfunctioning parachute, he watched his plane plummet to earth. He could never have guessed that, 49 years later, he would be reunited with his aircraft once more...
