and 6,200 Servicemen
With Nike anti-aircraft missiles standing guard nearby, the airmen and officers of Lincoln AFB stood long guard awaiting the call they hoped would never come, to fight World War III.
In 1966 the base closed becoming Lincoln Air Park and Arnold Heights. Explore the Force for Freedom you never knew existed.

Due to the increasing activity off the website including exhibits, lectures and other projects. The Lincoln Air Force Base Online Museum has changed its name to the Lincoln Air Force Base Legacy Project to more appropriately explain what we do.
New Page about the 34th Air-Refueling Squadron and the 549th Strategic Missile Squadron(818th Assigned but at Offutt AFB) established
Updates to 551st Strategic Missile Squadron page including updated links and new photos
New Base Building Directory on Flickr Now Open! We should have a good number of existing (and some no longer existing) building pictures posted!
We are on the lookout for the serial number of a C-47 that used to be on display at the base, located once behind the chapel near the main gate. If you have any photograph please let us know! Marion Brown has a great page of Lincoln AFB "museum" aircraft that once were at the base but have been long since removed. Visit here.
Come visit our "virtual" actual museum artifacts we hope to find a home for someday!
Also wanted to update a link to a great Lincoln AFB site at

In addition, to preserve the history of the former Lincoln Army Air Field, the 6th Missile Battalion/43rd Artillery U.S. Army and the overall Cold War history of the Lincoln, Nebraska area.
