"Candy Bomber" - The Story of the Berlin Airlift's Chocolate Pilot

By Michael O. Tunnell

This is the story of chocolate, bubble gum and hope

World War 2 was over, and Berlin was in ruins and the Berlin Airlift was in full swing. US Air Force pilot Gail Halverson wanted to bring some happiness to the children of the city - but what could one man in one plane do? Fourteen months and twenty tons of candy and gum later...This is the heartwarming story of what he and some of his fellow pilots did for the children they met in Berlin.

Paperback - 107 Pages - Many historical photos! (Sample photos on left. Caption for image 4 reads:Candy parachutes scatter from a C-54. Though Halverson initially jettisoned only three candy laden handkerchiefs, later drops released hundreds or even thousands of parachutes at a time.)

$9.95 + $4.50 S/H ($2.00 S/H each additional copy)
