The Airlift Memorial in Frankfurt was built on June 26, 1985. On the pedestal, a commemorative inscription and the names of the victims were kept on metal plates, which gave life when they supplied Berlin from the air. Next to the monument are a Douglas C-47 and a Douglas C-54 aircraft types, which played a major role in the Airlift. Hundreds of flights in Frankfurt am Main started and landed daily during the Berlin Airlift.
