Candy Bomber - Air Force authorizes Berlin Airlift streamers

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Retired Col. Gail Halvorsen holds the newly authorized Berlin Airlift streamer after Gen. Duncan J. McNabb presented it to him Oct. 29 here at the Airlift Tanker Association convention. Units that participated in the 1948-1949 humanitarian airlift can include the streamer on their units’ guidons. Colonel Halvorsen is known as the “Candy Bomber” for dropping candy from his aircraft to German children during the airlift. (U.S. Air Force photo)
