Springfield Remembers Tuskegee Airman With Display at Airport

A Springfield man whose distinguished military career included a role as one of the famed Tuskegee Airmen will be remembered with a display at Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport.


Lyman Hubbard, Senior, was a member of that World War II aviation unit of black pilots that helped shatter the military’s color barrier.


Hubbard died last year, and his family has now donated some of his medals and memorabilia to the airport museum.


The display is currently visible in the secure passenger area, but plans call for it to eventually be moved to the main terminal where it will be accessible by the general public.
