OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A special gathering took place Saturday at Eppley Airfield involving a group of WWII veterans.

Within that group included Robert Holts, who is Nebraska's last known living Tuskegee airman.

The group also included the 487th bomb group which lead the largest air raid during WWII. All the vets are in their 90s as the men got to see the historical planes on site including a few models they flew during combat.
