On the Berlin Airlift, Lawrence Kennedy was a Navigator with 18 Squadron, Transport Command. In the early days of the Airlift flight crews were regularly running four sorties a day in and out of Berlin. With a narrow flight corridor and just a few minutes space between each plane it was down to the Navigator to keep the pilot informed of their position. Lawrence’s good friend Barney was his pilot. Barney used to play by his own rules.
