Comments and historyBomber base 44 km west of Simferopol with large, rounded taxiway feeding a number of bomber revetments. The runway contains arrest barriers for practicing take off and landing on aircraft carriers. After the closure of bases in the Black Sea Fleet and ASW aircraft at Donuzlave, the rest of the regiment was moved to Saki. There are still Be-12, Ka-32, and Mi-14 left.
