One of the last DC-3 ('Candy Bomber') airplanes lifts off from the runway, Tempelhof International Airport, Berlin, Germany, 30 October, 2008.

Tempelhof was a vital hub of the 1948-49 Berlin Airlift, the humanitarian mission that provided Germans with food and heating coal when they were surrounded by Soviet troops and starving.

The DC-3s were so nicknamed "Candy Bombers" because in addition to dropping food and coal, they also dropped candy using miniature parachutes.
