Vance Brand Airport (ICAO: KLMOFAA LID: LMO, formerly AMR) is a city-owned public-use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) southwest of the central business district of Longmont, in Boulder County, Colorado, United States.[1] The Airport is named after former NASA astronaut Vance Brand.

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this facility is assigned LMO by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[2] (which assigned LMO to RAF Lossiemouth in Lossiemouth, Scotland[3]).
