In 1946, the 86th FBW/FIW was given the mission of protecting allied air space and patrolling the airlift corridor to Berlin in Russian-occupied East Germany. These F-47Ds of the 527th FS are showing a presence to the Russian Air Force by giving a United States Air Force MATS C-54 an escort to Templehof Airport.
