Spirit of Freedom

ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE, Md. -- Members of the the Berlin Airlift Historical Foundation pose with Retired Col. Gail Halvorsen (center) and his wife Lorraine (third from right) at the Joint Service Open House here May 18. Colonel Halvorsen earned the nickname the "Candy Bomber" for dropping more than 20 tons of candy to local children in Berlin, Germany, between 1948 and 1949. The BAHF stands before the C-54E transport aircraft dubbed, "The Spirit of Freedom." The foundation is dedicated to preserving the memory and legacy of a key humanitarian and aviation historical event, The Berlin Airlift. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Amaani Lyle)
