A groundbreaking local airman will be permanently remembered at Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport.
The family of Lyman Hubbard has donated some of his medals and memorabilia to the airport museum. Hubbard was one of the legendary Tuskegee Airmen, a unit of African-American pilots who helped shatter the military color barrier in World War II. He also served in the Korean and Vietnam conflicts before returning home to the Springfield area.
Hubbard passed away last year at the age of 85.
