Topic: Berlin Air Lift

Very good piece on Radio 4 this morning, Us and the septics in harness doing something good for a change. Freddie Laker involved apparently which I did not know. iPlayer it if you can, its worth it.

Re: Berlin Air Lift

landing a plane a minute in the 1940's, I'll bet that air traffic bird got a few grey hairs early!

Re: Berlin Air Lift

My old man got seconded from the RN to act as air crew (or removal men, as G Snr would have it) on this gig. Plonking a Dakota down at the airfield, with all that air traffic, was, apparantly a "sixpence/half Crown"  experience, according to himself.

The insurgency began.................and you missed it.
