In Summer 2019, 70 years after the original event, about 40 original machines (DC 3 + DC 4 + JU 52) from four continents will fly the former routes all the way to Berlin to commemorate the Berlin Airlift. In 1948, the former capital of Germany was at the very edge of a beginning political confrontation between the east and the west better known as The Cold War. When all accesses to the western part of Berlin were closed by the Sowjet army in the summer of 1948, only air transportation was able to support the city of Berlin and its more than 2 million citizens.
