Lone Rock Seventy Years Past
A post card of Tri-County Regional Airport (LNR) in southwest Wisconsin as it was just after WWII, the rotating beacon tower a reminder of Lone Rock's 1930s days as an emergency field at the junction of two air mail routes.
Air Marker "4312" indicates the airport latitude, 43 degrees 12 minutes N. The meaning of "C-TC 15" is obscure, perhaps "TC" identified Tri-County Airport.
The photographer captured some types typical of the period; an Aeronca 65-TC Tandem, BT-13A NC55604, Ercoupe NC87195, a distant Cessna 120 and wingless Fairchild PT-23.
