Hello and welcome to Drack's Airport Projects Journal. Here I will post projects of airports that serve my cities, from small General Aviation airfields to large-scale international airports, we build airports that serves the community and the economy. My first airport project to be in this journal is the Izuna Kamui International Airport, an airport fronting the Izuna Bay serving over 7 million passengers annually (just in my imagination.)
But before I show the finished work, let me start off with the airport's history.
Izuna Airport began as a small airfield built during the late 1940's. It only consisted of a few hangars, small buildings and a 700 meter runway. As time progresses, the airport was expanded little by little extending the runway's length and construction of a small terminal buildings. In the 1970's, a large terminal opened and a new 3000 meter runway was constructed.
Despite the new terminal however, the airport cannot keep up with the growing capacity of the airport, and a new expansion plan was being studied. The plan consists of a runway extension of 3300 meters, a new modern terminal, a larger cargo terminal, new navigation aids and ILS systems and maintenance hangars.
In the late 1990s, the airport was closed for the expansion plan, and airport operations was temporarily transferred to Nagi Airfield (later turned to an Air Force Base after the re-opening, stay tuned for a journal entry on this one). Thank you for reading and stay tuned for the next journal entry featuring the airport today.
