This term in Modern History Club we have been continuing our Cold War topic and have learned about the Berlin Blockade and Airlift in Germany from 1948 - 1949. Here the USSR blocked the allies from using Soviet road and railways to get supplies to west German citizens and so the West had to rely on three air corridors to transport goods for 11 months. One plane landed at Berlin Airport every minute!
