Independence Day Wiki

Bob Friend (20 January 1938 – 8 October 2008) was one of the original news anchors for the Sky News channel from its launch in 1989 until his retirement in late 2003.

Friend is portrayed as himself in Independence Day in which he covers the events of Operation Welcome Wagon. He gives words of condolences to the pilots who died, "our hearts and our prayers go out to the wives and children of those brave pilots, indeed, God help us all."
