Summary:This film describes the history of MATS (Military Air Transport Service) from its beginning just prior to the Berlin Airlift to the mission in Beirut in 1958. It depicts the role of MATS in worldwide defense as well as peace-time mercy missions. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
