Comments and historyAppears to be a never-completed bomber staging field, likely constructed around 1960. Significant runway and taxiway patterns faintly appear on satellite. Near village Mikhalkino. Some sort of radar facility exists 14 km NW at 69-28N 161-23E. Declassified satellite imagery shows the base existed in 1966 and was in good shape.
