The Role of Blackbushe in the Berlin Airlift

In the Fleet & Yateley News & Mail from Wednesday 10th October 2018, a letter by Peter Brown was published which paid tribute to the roles that Blackbushe and her based airlines played in the Berlin Airlift.

Reproduced here, you can read his informative letter and learn a little more about the varied history of Blackbushe.


Peter Brown runs the Blackbushe: One-Stop Forum which contains all sorts of historical accounts of Blackbushe, including his popular “Photo Of The Day” thread.

If you would like to learn more about Blackbushe and her History, why not buy a copy of Robert Belcher’s brilliant book?

With around 250 photographs of Blackbushe in the wartime, and under the control of the Ministry of Civil Aviation, including during the Berlin Airlift period, it is a thoroughly enjoyable read.
