Vietnam - Airfields

Most air bases and military airports in Vietnam were originally built by the French or Japanese. During the period of the Vietnam War, many new airfields were built or upgraded by the United States in South Vietnam or were built with the help of experts from the Soviet Union and China in the north. After 1975, no new military airport were built. Some were upgraded to cater for the needs of the people. Currently, except for some pure air bases, the airports in Vietnam are used by a mixture of civilian and military aircraft, or seen as military airport standby.
