Lincoln Airport

Braille on planes + Airport outdoor movies + Swifties at SJC

 When it comes to accessibility for travelers, every bit helps.

And on Thursday, United Airlines announced that a dozen of its aircraft now have Braille signage for individual rows and seat numbers as well as inside and outside the lavatories.

The Chicago-based carrier said it expects to outfit its entire mainline fleet with Braille by the end of 2026.

“Finding your seat on a plane or getting to the restroom is something most of us take for granted, but for millions of our customers, it can be a challenge to do independently,” said Linda Jojo, Executive Vice President, Chief Customer Officer for United, in a statement. “By adding more tactile signage throughout our interiors, we’re making the flying experience more inclusive and accessible, and that’s good for everyone.

Lincoln Airport’s outdoor movies

Here’s another airport amenity we love.

In the summer, Lincoln Airport (LNK) in Lincoln, NE hosts occasional free outdoor movies for the community.

The next movie is “Top Gun: Maverick,” and free tickets are available now.

The LNK movie ‘theater’ is on the west side of the airport, in an open green space. Films are projected on the side of an old Cold War hangar.

Did you get a friendship bracelet at San Jose Mineta Int’l Airport?

It looks like the Swifties friendship bracelet exchange at San Jose Mineta International Airport (SJC) was a big success for Taylor Swift fans arriving in town for this weekend’s concerts.

Free foam glider & free outdoor movies at Lincoln Airport (LNK)

This red Arrow Sport, one of only one of six known to still be in existence, was built by the Arrow Aircraft Company, of Havelock, Nebraska and now hangs in the terminal at Lincoln Airport (LNK) in Nebraska.

If you stop by the airport’s customer service desk, they will give you a free red foam glider plane in honor of the Arrow Sport.

LNK is also celebrating Halloween with free movies and a costume contest.

On Thursday, October 14, and Friday, October 15, LNK will be featuring the movie Hocus Pocus at its outdoor movie event. There will also be a Halloween costume contest.

“Red Skeleton” returns to the Wichita Airport

Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower Airport (ICT) in Kansas will be keeping us updated on the whereabouts of their friend, Red Skeleton, until the end of the month.

Last year Red really got around. He even had TSA Precheck status.

Hocus Pocus was a hit. Next?

In Nebraska, Lincoln Airport (LNK) has been having so much fun hosting drive-in movie nights – last week it was ‘Hocus Pocus’ – that they’re looking for ideas on what movie to show next.

ET, maybe?

Souvenir Sunday at Lincoln Airport

Arrow Sport on display at Lincoln Airport

Greetings from Nebraska’s Lincoln Airport, where this Arrow Sport – one of only six known to be in existence – hangs from the baggage claim ceiling.

The bag claim area of this small airport is also where I found this tractor from the collection of the Larsen Tractor Test & Power Museum on the University of Nebraska campus.
