Honoring the 50th Anniversary of the
First Victory of the Cold War
Left side of the slide features German children climbing over the rubble of war-ravaged Berlin, as a Douglas C-54 “Skymaster” plane flied overhead. British and American flags symbolize their cooperative effort, while German workers are shown unloading sacks of flour from an Allied plane. A banner to the left features “Berlin Airlift Fiftieth Anniversary,” with the dates “JUN 1948-SEPT 1949” to the rear of the slide.
On the right side, Douglas C-47 “Skytrain” transport planes line up to unload their precious cargoes in Berlin’s Tempelhof Airfields. One is shown taking off above a banner that dramatically proclaims, “Blockade Ends – ‘Airlift’ Wins!”
Featured on the top of the slide is a map showing the West German airfields used by American and British planes, and the narrow corridors of airspace they followed into the Soviet sector and the blockaded city of Berlin.
To present and protect you Tribute, we have designed a handsome luxuriously lined display case. Included is a brass plaque identifying your pistol as “The Berlin Airlift Golden Anniversary Tribute.”
