Candy Bomber Over Quigley Canyon

May 27, 2011

Hundreds of tiny white parachutes dropped from the sky in Hailey this afternoon (Thursday). The precious cargo: candy. It’s a reenactment of US Air Force missions during the Berlin airlift in 1948 and 1949 flown by retired Colonel Gail Hallvorsen. Boise State Public Radio’s Scott Ki spoke with reporter Tony Evans who was in Quigley Canyon during the drop. Tony Evans writes for the Idaho Mountain Express.
