GANGPLANK TO FREEDOM. Doors spread wide like open arms of welcome, this giant C-54 transport of the US Far East Air Forces helped evacuate 1,000 tiny orphans of war from the Korean capital city of Seoul to South Korea. Many of the children sick, most of them inadequately clothed against icy blasts sweeping across the airfield, they nevertheless quickly grasped the meaning of the 15 C-54s of the FEAF Combat Cargo Command waiting to receive them across their gangways. This held the promise of warmth, of safety, of freedom. Dec. 1950
