i believe the Berlin airlifts were a part of the marshall plan to help Europe recover from WW2. I wont go too into it, but the reason the USA did this was because in WW1, Germany was in debt because of paying reparations of war, damaged factories, and hungry people who were battered from war. this allowed Hiter to gain control of Germany....and the rest is history. anyways, the Berlin airlifts were when planes from the US or United nations flew over East Germany to supply the soviet controled Germans with food and supplies to live everyday lives. (soviets were controling what people in E Germany had)

kids got candy, America was heroes. yada yada yada
