June 15, 2009 – July 23, 2009

Museum: Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center

Location: Near Dulles International Airport, Rt. 28 & Air & Space Pkwy.

The Berlin Airlift was one of the defining events of the Cold War. American and British cargo planes delivered over 2.3 million tons of supplies to the citizens of Berlin during a Soviet blockade of the city from June 1948 to May 1949. To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the airlift and U.S.-German friendship, this exhibition features photographs of the program and the people and aircraft that made it possible.

Traveling under the auspices of the German Embassy, the Consulates Generals, and the Honorary Consuls in the United States.
