“For the next 11 months Allied planes flew in food, coal, machinery and other supplies to Tempelhof airport in the western city, 24/7. By the time the Soviets backed down, they had made 278,000 flights, logged a distance equivalent to 250 round trips to the moon and delivered 2.5 million tonnes of cargo. The Luftbrückendenkmal (Airlift Memorial) outside the airport honours the effort and those who died carrying it out. It was a monumental achievement that profoundly changed the relationship between Germany and the Western Allies, who were no longer regarded merely as occupational forces but as Schutzmächte (protective powers).”
