History of Eppley Airfield

In 1925, the City of Omaha acquired 200 acres east of Carter Lake for use as an addition to the Levi Carter Park. Mostly clear of trees and level, airplanes started using the field there almost immediately. This later became the Eppley Airfield.

In 1934, the City of Omaha built a terminal at the American Legion Municipal Airport. Three years later, the City of Omaha opened a terminal at the American Legion Municipal Airport, later renamed Eppley Airfield.

Leading up to World War II, there was a passenger boom at the facility. In 1960, Omaha’s American Legion Municipal Airport was renamed Eppley Airfield in honor of its major patron, businessman Eugene C. Eppley. With his donations, a new terminal was opened and the runway was expanded to accommodate jet airplanes in 1961.

In the 1990s, the Lindbergh Plaza was paved around the airport and further security measures were installed.

In June 2011 the airport and all of eastern Omaha were struck by massive flooding from the Missouri River. More than 175,000 sandbags were placed to protect Eppley Airfield buildings and other places.
