Remark Photographer
43-49081 (cn 26342/14897) Is preserved at the US Air Force base at Frankfurt-Rhein Main airport. It is a memorial for the Berlin Airlift, a huge operation to bring food and fuel into Berlin in 1948/49. The Russians had isolated Berlin from the rest of the world so no cargo could enter Berlin over the ground. The only way to bring those things was through the air. Next to this DC-3 is also DC-4 44-9063. The DC-3 has flown as EC-ASF with Iberia, T.3-64 with the Spanish Air Force and as N1350M. And of course as you see it now: 43-49081 of the USAAF.
