See the Candy Bomber
The famous Candy Bomber aircraft is coming to Dare County Regional Airport! Experience a reenactment of the 1948-1949 Candy Drop over Berlin by the Candy Bomber Crew with the original Douglas C-54 Spirit of Freedom. The Spirit of Freedom dropped handkerchief parachutes filled with candy to the children during the Berlin Airlift when the city was cut off from receiving supplies.
The C-54 will participate in the Wright Brothers Flyover Celebration and will have two reenactments of the candy drop:
- Children ages 6 and younger - 1 p.m.
- Children ages 7 and older - 1:30 p.m.
Santa lands onboard the C-54 at 2 p.m. and children will be able to visit and have their picture taken with Santa!
