In the early hours of June 26, 1948, phones began ringing across America, waking up the airmen of World War II—pilots, navigators, and mechanics—who were finally beginning normal lives with new houses, new jobs, new wives, and new babies. Some were given just forty-eight hours to report to local military bases. The president, Harry S. Truman, was recalling them to active duty to try to save the desperate people of the western sectors of Berlin, the enemy capital many of them had bombed to rubble only three years before.

Let's make a joint effort, perhaps we can kick them out.

     -Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin to Wilhelm Pieck, Communist Party leader of East Germany, March 19, 1948
We stay in Berlin. Period.

     -President Harry S. Truman on June 29, 1948, after his military and diplomatic advisors told him there was no way for a few thousand Allied soldiers to stand up to hundreds of thousands of Red Army troops blockading the city
It was great fun, we were all together again doing an important job. . . . You'd be talking to some fellow and find out he had been a lawyer in Manhattan a couple of weeks before.

     -Royal Air Force Flight Lieutenant John Curtis, later Air Marshal Sir John Curtis

Tempelhof Airport is quiet now, being turned into a giant park by the Berlin City Council. But there was a time sixty years ago when it was never silent, in 1948 and 1949, when American and British planes landed or took off every forty-five seconds to keep Berlin and Berliners alive.
