    What shortfnals said! Thanks for this, Joe.

    That sends me down the memory hole. I have a friend who is retired now. He was an Air Force pilot, flying C-54 transports.

    One of the most memorable things they did was drop candy and gum to kids trapped in East Berlin as they made their approach to land.

      It is the little things many of the times we hold closest, isn’t it? Big plane and your friend could drop candy, good piloting 🙂
