Lincoln Airport

Lincoln Nebraska has a long and colorful history as the home of the men, women, and machines of the air.


This webpage was intended to be a history of the Lincoln Air Force Base, but there’s a better site at  So I changed this over to be a brief account of specific items of aviation mainly dealing with Lincoln, Nebraska, but topics from any part of the state may be included.  It is not intended to be a complete history of anything.  If you have items to add, please feel free to do so.  E-mail me at jeffrey892 at gmail dot com.

A North American T-6C-NT, 41-33042 Texan at Lincoln Army Air Field during the 1940’s.  Notice the LI42 number on the side.  Another T-6 sits in the hangar behind the tail.  This photo provides great detail of the hangar doors.

Two more T-6’s can be seen in this photo.  One in front of the hangar and one out near the flight line to the right.  Seems odd that the gate is open.
