Rock County Airport (ICAO: KRBE, FAA LID: RBE) is a public use airport located two nautical miles (3.7 km) southwest of the central business district of Bassett, a city in Rock County, Nebraska, United States. It is owned by the Rock County Airport Authority.[1] According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013, it is classified as a general aviation airport.[2]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned RBE by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned RBE to Ratanakiri Airport in Ratanakiri, Cambodia[4]).
