I was looking up links to transport aircraft and chose the C-54 Skymaster. A few more hops and the story of Lt. Gail Halverson, "The Candy Bomber" of the Berlin Airlift dropped from the sky. What makes this story interesting, is that the first delivery of "candy by parachute" happened on Christmas, 1948. Submitted for your approval, is an appropriate song about "Operation Little Vittles.";)
