EIGHT AIRLIFT VETERAN PILOTS AT JFKS TO CELEBRATE THE 65th ANNIVERSARY OF THE AIRLIFT

On Tuesday, 13 May,  the airlift veterans visited the JFKS and had the opportunity to tell their story to the students in different ES classes. The pilots are between 85 and 93 years old now. We certainly hope it was not their last visit. 
The students were very interested and spoke long with the veterans.  This did not stop at the reception in the library later on. Also some of the “children” during the AIRLIFT were present too. Also they spoke about their experiences. 
It was a very moving encounter.
