My father, a squadron-leader in WW2, flew this plane taking coals in and passengers out during the Berlin airlift. He is 87 now. Good to see it still going, like him! And strange it is now in Berlin again! That's why the photo, being so clear and detailed, is special to me.

Aviationtag has made a keychain of this historic DC-3 Candybomber D-CXXX. It played a very important role in German history during its flights in the Berlin Airlift.

Pocket sized aviation history.
