    These pictures help to recall some warm memories. This used to be a civilian airport. In the 80s, I took many flights in and out of it. The run away is very small, and it is well within the city limits, so only very small airplanes were flying out of it. I recall seeing only An-2, An-24, and lots of Yak-40. The Yak-40 were the most common, and they flew to Georgia, South Russia, Azerbaijan, and regional airports in Armenia. Now it’s a military only airport.

    Only very experienced Russian pilots are allowed to be stationed there. There are many difficulties with flying from this airport. First is the elevation of about 1km above sea level. Second, the runway pretty much points at the border with Turkey which is just ten kilometers away, so those Mig-29s have to perform crazy evasive maneuvers on take off simply not to violate the Turkish air space.
