Horace Shankweiler made a gutsy call as a bomber pilot during World War II that saved 10 lives after the D-Day invasion.

(Hot Springs Village, Arkansas) – Horace Shankweiler was a 24-year-old U.S. Air Force captain as World War II marched toward its turning point: the D-Day invasion.


He was a lead pilot who flew B-24 Liberator bombers out of Tibenham airfield in England for 27 missions over Europe.


But the 18th mission was almost Horace’s last.


Hit by German gunfire after bombing Nazi defenses in France, Horace managed to steer his B-24 back over the English Channel before crash-landing on an emergency airstrip near the White Cliffs of Dover. All 10 crew members survived.


“We got down, and I didn’t have any brakes and our hydraulic system was shot out, and the ship was full of holes,” says Horace, 94, a resident at Good Samaritan Society – Hot Springs Village. “Fortunately, nobody was hit, and I was very, very lucky.”


For his service, heroism, and role in liberating France, Horace received a Legion of Honor medal. France’s Consul General awarded it this summer during a ceremony in Texas with 35 other D-Day veterans.
