Roy Cram, a Burwell, Nebraska physician and aviation enthusiast, preserved a vital part of our state’s aviation history. In 1962 Cram bought an Arrow Sport, one of six known to exist, restored the plane to its original appearance and condition, and flew it for years. Purchased by the Nebraska State Historical Society Foundation in 1977, with help from the Friends of Lincoln Aviation, the Arrow Sport is on display at the Lincoln Municipal Airport.  

Cram combined a love of flying with community service. His efforts to promote aviation, teach young aviators, and develop a new Burwell airport were recognized when it was dedicated in 1961 as Cram Field.
