: For flatlands and neat scenery think of Loveland/Ft.Collins which is the

Yes, it is beautiful up here. We should rename the FNL airport to be
"Longs Peak Airport", to enjoy it even more! Unfortunately, I have a
nit-pick.

Nit pick: the published name of the airport is:
"Fort Collins - Loveland".

Some of the local "yahoos" call it "fort love", but Im pretty sure
they are displaced texans and think theyre still near that other
place, "fooowt wuuuth".

There was a "Loveland" airport, called "Loveland Beech", and "Loveland
- Poverty Flats". So, if someone talks on the radio and identifies a
"Loveland" airport, Im SURE they are at least several miles west of
"Fort Collins - Loveland".

The PREVIOUS name of the industrial park next to the airport was named
and labeled "Loveland/Fort Collins Industrial Park". Unfortunately,
both names, "Loveland/Fort Collins Industrial Park" and "Fort
Collins/Loveland Airport" were on the entrance sign in the past. Now,
only "Fort Collins/Loveland" appears on the sign. :-)

By the way, we actually changed the name of "Valley Airpark" to "Fort
Collins Downtown". It was NEVER "downtown valley airpark":
