The Air Force has bestowed its Heritage Award on the Berlin Airlift exhibit created by the Enlisted Heritage Hall at Maxwell-Gunter AFB, Ala. EHH curator Bill Chivalette, says that research and planning for the exhibit began in 1995, but the actual display had to wait until completion of EHH’s new wing. The Hall dedicated both the wing and the Berlin Airlift exhibit in June 2005. (Read our January and September 2005 pictorials for more on the Hall.)
The Pentagon awarded a contract worth over $2 billion for the next batch of F-35 engines to Pratt & Whitney on June 5. The deal for Lot 17 F135 engines, totaling $2.02 billion, is expected to be completed by December 2025.
