Candy Bomber rededicates Frankfurt's Berlin Airlift Memorial
Retired Col. Gail Halvorsen, a C-52 Skymaster pilot also known as the “Berlin Candy Bomber,” gives a thumbs-up gesture after the reopening ceremony of the Berlin Airlift Memorial outside Frankfurt International Airport, Germany, Nov. 22, 2016. Halvorsen and his fellow pilots dropped 23 tons of candy with makeshift parachutes from his C-54 as part of the Berlin Airlift, which delivered more than 2 million tons of food to the blockaded citizens of West Berlin between June 1948 and September 1949.
