    Kind of hard to tell from the Wikipedia history of the base, but it probably had B-29s at that time, if any active aircraft at all. It kind of went through a lull right in there ( early 1949).

    Her family went through Offut AFB later on, in the 50s. Her father retired as a Colonel in 1963, having started when the AF was part of the Army about 30 years before.

    Moderation in most things.
