Comments and historyIn 1965 the airfield had MiG-19, Yak-12, and MiG-15UTI aircraft, but was upgraded to the MiG-21 in the 1970s. By the 1990s it was home to the 33 IAP operating MiG-23 and MiG-29 aircraft. The last Russian regiment, flying MiG-29 aircraft, departed in 1994. The runway appears to have been used for drag racing.
