Berlin 1961-62 - Photo #91 - 3. Pictures taken by Robert C. Paul, age 12, May 1962

May 1962 Platz der Luftbrücke and the Airlift Memorial, Berlin. This memorial, which was built by the citizens of West Berlin to commemorate the Berlin Airlift, stood at the entrance to Tempelhof Airport for many years. It has since been moved to a special location at the end of the Frankfurt Airport runways (whence many of the Airlift flights departed and returned). Tempelhof Airport has since been decommissioned. For a vivid portrait of the Berlin Airlift, see the film The Big Lift (1950).
