Eppley Airfield (IATA: OMA, ICAO: KOMA, FAA LID: OMA) or Omaha Airport is a commercial airport located three miles (5 km) northeast of the
central business district of Omaha, a city in Douglas County, Nebraska, United States. It is the largest airport in the state of Nebraska.
In addition to the Omaha-Council Bluffs metropolitan area, Eppley Airfield serves communities throughout eastern Nebraska, western Iowa,
northern Kansas, Missouri, and South Dakota. The airport is currently a focus city for Milwaukee-based Midwest Airlines.
People driving from downtown Omaha must go through Iowa to reach it and conversely people coming from the mainland of Iowa must cross Missouri
River bridges into Nebraska to reach it. This is because the Missouri River formerly formed an oxbow on the west side of the airport. The river cut off
the oxbow during an 1877 flood. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the land now west of the Missouri was part of Iowa.
