the candy bomber brings more than candy

The story of the Candy Bomber is a wonderful tale of a simple act of human kindness having a lasting impact. Perfect for the holiday season, this story by Kip Tabb over on the North Beach Sun shares the history of an amazing man who wasn’t afraid to do the right thing.

“The Candy Bomber came back again to the Outer Banks, and the story behind its name tells an extraordinary tale of generosity of spirit and a simple act of kindness.

The year was 1948 and Soviet control of East Germany was complete. Germany as a nation had been divided after WWII, and where the allied powers that controlled the western part of Germany—the United States, England and France—were trying to reunite the country, the Soviet Union would have none of that.”

 

The Candy Bomber has gone back to the Candy bomber home, but the story of the historic aircraft’s visit to the Outer Banks is a good read in the North Beach Sun.
