Every race track should have an historic airplane theme static airplane display

I’m not a fan of Formula E but I watched a few minutes of it today. Enough to peak my curiosity about the Douglas C-54 Skymaster parked in the middle of the track. Some quick reading surfaced that that provided most of the Berlin Airlift support into the airport where the track is when Russia cut off the road access.

Of course I was familiar in general with the Berlin Airlift but going back and reading the details of the tonnage and what a victory it was for Berlin was a fun read.

Interesting history of the airport too.
