Retired Col. Gail S. Halvorsen, known commonly as the Berlin "Candy Bomber," stands in front of a C-54 Skymaster like the one he flew during WWII at the Pima Air and Space Museum in Arizona. Halvorsen dropped candy bars attached to parachutes made from handkerchiefs to German children watching the airlift operations from outside the fence of the Tempelhof Airport in West Berlin.
