What incident is known as berlin airlift?
Dedicated to Preserving the Memory and Legacy of the Berlin Airlift of 1948-1949 The Berlin Airlift Historical Foundation is dedicated to preserving the memory and legacy of the greatest humanitarian/aviation event in history, The Berlin Airlift. Our Mission is to preserve this memory by preserving several aircraft used in the great event and creating “Flying Memorials and Classrooms” with the purpose of educating the public about this pivotal, yet forgotten, event in world history. Founded in 1988, the Foundation has obtained and restored to flying condition, a Douglas C-54E transport aircraft, which helped support the C-54’s which carried out this great mission. Named “SPIRIT OF FREEDOM”, the aircraft is painted to represent the 48th Troop Carrier Squadron, one of the many groups which carried out the event. Inside, the “SPIRIT”, is a genuine museum dedicated to the Berlin Airlift, filled with artifacts, displays, and information explaining this all important event in recent history.
