On June 19th, 2010, the Berlin Candy Bomber was forced to make an emergency landing at the Berlin-Schönefeld Airport.

The historic aircraft survived, but suffered serious damages.  Just five days after the emergency landing, pilots and aviation fans alike came together to form a society dedicated to the rebuilding of the airplane and bringing it back to life.

For the members of the association, it’s a cause dear to their hearts: preserving the Candy Bomber as a flying legend and as a memorial to the Berlin Airlift of 1948/1949.  Under the leadership of honorary chairman Captain Heinz-Dieter Kallbach, the first head captain of the plane from Berlin, they have made serious efforts to realize the full repair of this machine.  The story of the Douglas DC-3 that once made the survival of so many Berliners possible is a story that cannot be forgotten.

Help us keep the Candy Bomber and its story alive!

The aim of the association is to promote and build up the only aircraft DC – 3 certified for passenger transport in Europe, the Raisin Bomber with the preservation of its flight capability for the purpose of national and international presentation.

To preserve the Raisin Bomber as a flying legend in the tradition and reminder as a memorial and contemporary witness, especially at the time of the Berlin Airlift to save the city of Berlin.

Invitation to the press conference

Once he saved the lives of Berliners. His name stands for inflexibility, cohesion and the largest airlift of all times: the Raisin Bomber.

One of these planes from that time flew the Berliners and tourists from all over the world until June 2010. During an emergency landing, the plane was then severely damaged. The Förderverein Rosinenbomber e.V. supports the reconstruction and preservation of this flying monument.

Margarete Steiff GmbH, in cooperation with the KaDeWe and the Förderverein, has now developed a teddy bear to commemorate the brave pilots of the Raisin Bombers who delivered the vital cargo to Berlin.

The teddy has a high collector’s value and is published in a limited edition.

We want to introduce the cute guy to you and at the same time report on the state of affairs regarding the Raisin Bomber.

Time is running out for the Raisin Bomber

It took a few weeks but now the hour strikes for the Raisin Bomber. More precisely, the watch manufacturer Askania is supporting the reconstruction of the historic aircraft with its new timepiece.

“Just as Askania embodies a long Berlin tradition, the Raisin Bomber should once again stand for Berlin,” says Askania boss Leonhard Müller. For every watch sold, he will donate 100 euros to the rescue of the flying Berlin symbol.
