KLIA Old Lima Ohio Allen Airport. Lima, Ohio Allen Countys first paved airport, KLIA. Opened; 1933. Closed; 1980 Built in 1933, it first consisted of 3 sod runways, with a single hangar located in the Northwest corner. It later (around 1960) sported a single paved east-west runway (9 27, 3, 500 ft) and two sod strips, with one running parallel to the North of the paved runway.

This scenery was my first airport project ever; built largely with information gleaned from Paul Freemans Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields website (an incredible resource for history buffs, with a state-by-state listing of gone forgotten airports broken down into regions). I know the layout is accurate, though I couldnt find the exact style of buildings used at the actual airport, so I had to use library generic items. It was an attempt to replicate it during the Lake Central years, but with no pictures available, I had to use my imagination. The wind tee location is estimated, from old diagrams.
