Whiteman Air Force Base Prepares To Honor History of 131st Bomb Wing
Whenever you tour Whiteman Air Force Base, you’ll see static displays of a B-29, A-10, T-38, UH-1 helicopter, Minuteman Missle and many others around the Base. Now, Whiteman Air Force Base is preparing to honor the heritage of the Missouri Air National Guard’s 131st Bomb Wing, with a new park.
The 131st Bomb Wing has been stationed at Whiteman since they left Lambert Airport in St. Louis in 2008.
The 131st Bomb Wing Missouri Air National Guard’s Civil Engineers recently visited Whiteman AFB to help build the new heritage park. The new park honoring the 131st’s proud aviation heritage will be home to three aircraft that are currently on display at Lambert Air National Guard Base-St.Louis: McDonnell Douglas F-15A “Eagle”, North American F-100F “Super Sabre,” and McDonnell Douglas F-4E “Phantom.”
While a completion date is pending, the park will be located at the corner of Vandenburg and 10th Streets at Whiteman AFB.
