In the 1990’s the County Commissioners began serious discussions to take over the airport from the city. In May 1998 the Lawrence County Airport Authority was officially organized and later that year all property was transferred to county control. Haski Aviation continues to manage the airport as of 2017. (c2010) Full Size

I flew out of there quite a few times as a kid. My fathers friend, Bob Oesterling, had a couple planes there in the late 50’s/early 60’s. He was an Optometrist in N.C. and would come by the house and pick me up because I loved to fly. We would go to Butler or over into Ohio or New York. When Bob was out flying by himself he would fly over our house on Brest Road and drop candy down to us kids on little parachutes. I really enjoyed flying with him as a kid. Bob had 25 “unscheduled landings” as he would call them. One of them I went with him to pick up his plane on a trailer and bring it back to the airport after we dismantled the wings. Great times back then.
