The Best Article

A team of three judges has selected Lt. Col. John Plating's "Cannon, Egg, Charlie and Baker: Airlift Links between World War II and the Chinese Civil War" as the best article to appear in Air Power History during 2006. Lt. Col. Mr. Plating's article appeared in the Fall issue of the magazine.

Seven articles were nominated for this year's award, with the judging being very close. In the end, only a few points separated the top three in the scoring, with the judges noting that each of the articles presented important new information on air operations worldwide, not just of the U.S. Air Force.

This year's judges were Lt. Col. Raymond Fredette, USAF (Ret.); General Hansford T. Johnson, USAF (Ret.), of the Institute for Defense Analyses; and Dr. Perry Jamieson, of the Office of Air Force History.
