Comments and historyIn 1965 the airfield had MiG-17, Yak-12, and MiG-15UTI aircraft, plus an Il-28 target towing regiment. The fighter regiment upgraded to the MiG-21 in the 1970s, and a Mi-24 helicopter regiment operated at the airfield. The housing areas were destroyed around 2000. An industrial park is planned at this airfield and improvements to the airfield have been made.
