A Visit to Lincoln, Nebraska

A ubiquitous C-47, several of which could be found at every air base during
this time.
Last Friday, we saw some shots taken by a young aviation enthusiast at Scott Field, Illinois in the mid-to-late 1940s. Today, we have some drive-by snapshots that he took at Lincoln Air Force Base in Nebraska.

Clearly the airfield security back then wasn't what it is today!

AT-6D Texan 41-33648. 
8/19/2012 update: This AT-6C, 41-33648, was eventually transferred to the RAF as Harvard II number EX675. It later crashed during a forced landing on 18 April 1950.

(No cowboys here!)
