Famed Berlin ‘candy bomber’ visits Utah junior high musical about his WWII morale-boosting operation

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Gabe Duggar playing the Candy Bomber, Gail Halvorsen, gives two sticks of gun to children in West Berlin Germany, in the Mueller Park Jr High production of "The Berlin Candy Bomber" at Woods Cross High School, Saturday, November 11, 2017.

Students at Mueller Park Junior High School on Friday and Saturday performed “The Berlin Candy Bomber,” an original musical based on the story of Gail Halvorsen.

Halvorsen, a Utah native, delivered candy by airplane to German children after World War II. The famed airman gave a video presentation at both performances of the musical.
