Col. Gail Halvorsen, left, nicknamed “The Candy Bomber” and this year’s inductee into the Paul E. Garber First Flight Shrine at the Wright Brothers National Memorial, poses Tuesday with National Park Service Outer Banks Group Superintendent Dave Hallac during an event at the memorial commemorating the 116th anniversary of the first powered flight.
Halvorsen is known for dropping candy to German children during the Berlin Airlift of World War II. The two are standing next to a painting that commemorates Halvorsen’s induction. The shrine pays tribute to the history of aviation and is named for the first curator of the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum. Photo: Kip Tabb
