Deaths By Individual Air Fields


Deaths By Individual Air Fields

The Bruning Army Air Field experienced more deaths than any other airfield in Nebraska. The high number is primarily the result of the single C-47 crash that occurred near Naper that took the lives of 28 airmen.

The airfields listed below are home locations for the aircraft.   For instance, the crash of the B-17 at Kearney on February 2, 1944, originated from Cheyenne, WY, so is listed for that location. The C-53 that crashed near Malcolm on July 19, 1943, was coming from Cleveland, OH, but was based at Alliance.
