Antung Airfield was a major base for People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) and Korean People's Air Force (KPAF) fighters during the Korean War used in the defense of the supply lines across the Yalu River to the North Korean city of Sinuiju and for engaging attacking USAF aircraft in the area that became known as MiG Alley.
In November 1950 reconnaissance photos showed that the previous two gravel runways had been replaced by a 6,000 feet (1,800 m) concrete runway with hard-surfaced taxiways.:245 By March 1951, the PLAAF had at least 75 MiG-15s based at Antung.:296
