Berlin's bread and butter
Though the history of the C-54 was long and varied, it was the Skymaster's service during the Berlin Airlift that was the most pivotal. At 10 tons a flight, the Skymaster and accompanying aircraft were able to deliver nearly two-and-a-half million tons of supplies in just under a year. The reliability, lift capacity, and speed of the four-engine Skymaster, coupled with the determination of air crews, ground crews, and civilians, enabled the US and Britain to pull off the single greatest feat in aviation history.
