Laredo International Airport (IATA: LRDICAO: KLRDFAA LID: LRD) is a city-owned public-use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) northeast of the central business district of Laredo, a city in Webb County, Texas, United States.[2]

The airport is served by three commercial airlines with flights to Houston, Dallas, Las Vegas and Orlando. In the twelve months ending December 2013, LRD had 102,856 passengers.[3] In 2012, LRD totaled 460,000,612 pounds of cargo.[4]

History[edit]

The Laredo International Airport was used by the United States Army Air Forces during World War II as Laredo Army Airfield, and by the United States Air Force as Laredo Air Force Base during the Cold War as a pilot training base with T-33 Shooting Star and later T-37 Tweet and T-38 Talon aircraft. The military presence ended in December 1973 as part of a nationwide defense cutback following the end of the Vietnam War.

At the entrance to the airport is the statue Among Friends There Are No Borders, designed by Armando Hinojosa of Laredo, which depicts a South Texas vaquero and a Mexican charro sharing a campfire.

Facilities and aircraft[edit]

Laredo International Airport covers an area of 1,796 acres (727 ha) at an elevation of 508 feet (155 m) above mean sea level. It has three runways:[2]

  • Runway 14/32: 5,928 x 150 ft (1,807 x 46 m), Surface: Concrete
  • Runway 17L/35R: 8,236 x 150 ft (2,510 x 46 m), Surface: Concrete
  • Runway 17R/35L: 8,743 x 150 ft (2,665 x 46 m), Surface: Asphalt

For the 12-month period ending September 30, 2007, the airport had 57,698 aircraft operations, an average of 158 per day: 48% general aviation, 28% military, 18% air taxi and 7% scheduled commercial. At that time there were 41 aircraft based at this airport: 37% single-engine, 20% multi-engine, 32% jet and 12% helicopter.[2]

There is one, two-floor terminal at the Laredo International Airport. The bottom floor contains the check-in counters, a gift shop, a restaurant, baggage carousel, rental car desks, and US customs. The airport's security checkpoint and four gates, all with jetways, are located on the second floor. Free Wi-Fi internet access is available throughout the terminal. Gates 3 and 4 allow direct access to US customs. KLRD sometimes receives a share of diverted flights when severe weather threatens Dallas or Houston.

Accidents and incidents[edit]

  • On 31 October 1983, Douglas DC-3C N44896 of FBN Flying Service was destroyed by fire at Laredo International Airport while attempting to take-off on a cargo flight to McAllen-Miller International Airport, Texas.[5] A fire had developed on board the aircraft during the take-off run, and the crew were unable to extinguish it with the equipment available to them.[6]
  • On 28 July 1987, Douglas C-53 N39DT of La Mesa Leasing Inc was damaged beyond economic repair when the port engine failed shortly after take-off on an international cargo flight to Ciudad Camargo Airport, Mexico. The aircraft was overloaded by 3,809 pounds (1,728 kg) and the power from the remaining good engine was insufficient to sustain flight. The aircraft stalled and crashed whilst attempting to make an emergency landing back at Laredo. Both crew survived.[7] A post-accident investigation revealed no problems with the failed engine.[8]
  • On 18 January 1989, Douglas DC-3 XB-DYP crashed shortly after take-off. The aircraft was on an international cargo flight to Torreón International Airport, Mexico. The cause of the accident was that the cargo was improperly secured and shifted in flight, causing the centre of gravity to move aft.[9]
  • On 11 September 1991, Continental Express Flight 2574, an Embraer EMB 120 Brasilia, lost its horizontal stabilizer due to maintenance error while on approach to Houston Intercontinental Airport and crashed in a field near Eagle Lake, Texas, killing all 14 on board.
  • On 21 May 2002, Douglas DC-3A XB-JBR of Aero JBR ditched in Lake Casa Blanca, Texas after a double engine failure while performing a touch-and-go at Laredo International Airport.[10] It is reported that one of the engines suffered a propeller overspeed condition. All three crew escaped from the submerged aircraft.[11]
  • On 9 November 2010, ZA002, a flight test Boeing 787 made an emergency landing after fire had broken out in its P100 electrical panel.[12]
