Luftbrücke

Taking a walk at lunch around Scott Air Force Base I got a chance to take a picture of the Luftbrücke. It is a sculpture commemorating the Berlin Airlift. There is a companion piece to this, which is located at the former Rhein Main Air Base in Frankfurt Germany, where I was also stationed in the mid-90s. It is a testament to the men and women who kept the supplies flowing to the city of West Berlin during the blockade. If you are ever on the base stop and get the chance stop to take a look.

Just a guy living and working in the metro east area of St. Louis, or as some might call it: Illinois. Spent 20 years in the Air Force and am now retired. Photography is my passion so that is what you're going to see here.
