Aircraft Flown at Scott

Dirigibles/Balloons, 1921-37: The 12th Balloon Company and 9th Airship Company transferred to Scott Field from Fort Omaha, Neb. Formal lighter-than-air aircraft courses began. At this time, Scott Field had balloons and two small non-rigid airships. Scott’s airships, such as the TC-6 (pictured here) were housed in a facility with the distinction of being the second largest hangar in the world until 1937.
