Comments and historyThis is one of the two largest airfields in the Murmansk region. The main resident unit is the 987 MRAP, flying Tu-22M and Tu-16 as late as the early 1990s. Also operating from the airfield is 24 ODLAPDD, flying Il-38s in the early 1990s. The 3000 m runway has a 500 m overrun on the north side, and the airfield can accommodate over 40 bombers and a small number of fighters. It lies 4 km south of Severomorsk. This airfield was referred to as Vayenga in a 1955 CIA intelligence estimate, citing an airfield 9.5 miles northeast of Murmansk.
