Lyambir (Russian: Лямбирь) is an air base in Russia, located 12 kilometers (7.5 mi) north of Saransk. It is a large airfield with parallel taxiway and tarmac space. Probably a forward deployment airfield. Google Earth images show airfield empty except for a few small single-engine propeller planes.
