The Candy Bomber to have some new pilots
(Teddy Bears for the Candy Bomber)
Invitation to Press Conference
Once, she saved the lives of countless Berliners. Her name stands for Persistence, Unity, and the greatest airlift of all time: the Candy Bomber.
One of these planes flew locals and tourists from all over the world in the Berlin skies from then until 2010 – but she suffered an emergency landing and was badly damaged. The Friends of the Candy Bomber Assoc. is supporting the reconstruction and preservation of this flying monument.
The Margarete Steiff GmbH, in cooperation with KaDeWe and the Association, has developed a Teddy Bear in honor of the courageous pilots of the Candy Bomber who carried their life-saving goods to Berlin.
The Teddy Bear is a collector’s item and is only being released in a limited edition.
Here we would like to present this sweet little guy to you and to bring you up to date on the latest about the Candy Bomber.
