"The Berlin Airlift - A Legacy of Friendship" Exhibit on view at Sea-Tac Airport through December 31, 2008
Seattle - Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac, SEA) -- December 2008 -- This December, if your travels bring you to the Seattle - Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac) you may want to check out the exhibit on the Berlin Airlift. The exhibit commemorates the 60th anniversary of the Berlin Airlift. In 1948 the Soviets attempted to gain control of all of Berlin, which had been divided amongst the Soviet Union and the Allies after World War II, by cutting off all ground access to the city. President Harry S. Truman and his administration instituted the Berlin Airlift, which brought supplies to Berlin until 1949.
The exhibit consists of 60 photo panels and is located pre-security in the Main Terminal in the south end of the ticketing level, behind the SAS ticket counters, and next to the bank of elevators that serve the Airport Office Building, according to the Sea-Tac airport web site.
