"Betsy's Biscuit Bomber" Vintage Plane Mascot T-shirt

▼ Betsy’s Biscuit Bomber is the mascot of a Douglas C47B that played a significant humanitarian role post WWII by delivering supplies to Western Allies blocked by the Soviet Union.
▼ A preservation society maintains and flies this aircraft- the backside lists a few European sites which it may have recently toured (Arnhem, Rhine, Bastogne, Bulge)
▼ The Berlin blockade (24 June 1948 – 12 May 1949) was one of the first major international crises of the Cold War. During the multinational occupation of post–World War II Germany, the Soviet Union blocked the Western Allies’ railway, road and canal access to the sectors of Berlin under Allied control. Their aim was to force the western powers to allow the Soviet zone to start supplying Berlin with food and fuel, thereby giving the Soviets practical control over the entire city.
In response, the Western Allies organized the Berlin airlift to carry supplies to the people in West Berlin.The United States Air Force and the British Royal Air Force flew over 200,000 flights in one year, providing up to 4700 tons of daily necessities such as fuel and food to the Berliners.
By the spring of 1949, the effort was clearly succeeding and, by April, the airlift was delivering more cargo than had previously been transported into the city by rail. The success of the Berlin Airlift brought embarrassment to the Soviets who had refused to believe it could make a difference.
