logo 73 BW Reunion 2002 Omaha

Omaha is a great crowd pleaser and a natural choice for the 27th annual 73rd Bomb Wing Reunion. There were many wonderful things to see, delicious foods to eat and things to do! Omaha is a big city with a hometown atmosphere. Omaha has a population of around 400,000 residents and sits between the Missouri and Elkhorn River valleys.

Our reunion home was the Omaha Marriott Hotel (Regency). The Marriott was 15 minutes from downtown Omaha, across the street from the Regency Court premiere shopping district and lots of great restaurants.
