Pyongyang Airfield

This facility has a very similar spelling to Pyonggang resulting in some confusion from time to time. The runway is 7,000 ft long, 375 ft wide and was constructed after demolishing buildings in downtown Pyongyang along a straight stretch of hard surface.

After UN forces captured the airfield F-51 aircraft briefly operated from it. A small North Korean PO-2 biplane dropped fragmentation bombs on F-51 aircraft from the 8th Fighter Bomber Group killing an Air Force Sergeant and damaged 11 Mustangs.
