Into the Wild Blue: Omaha Aviation History in Photographs
February 22 – November 30, 2014

Before there were airports or even a landing strip in Omaha, pilots braved rough landings and bumpy takeoffs in empty fields. They showed off new airplanes and stunts and brought the mail from distant cities. Today, jets transport thousands of passengers each day to Eppley Airfield. Between then and now, Omahans have recorded every new, exciting change on film. Into the Wild Blue: Omaha’s Aviation History in Photographs explores the story of aviation pioneer Glenn Curtis’ visit to Omaha, the steady rhythm of bomber construction at the Martin Bomber Plant, the roar of jet engines at Eppley Airfield and much more, told through images from The Durham Museum’s photo archive.
