Uzhnyi (also Severnyi) (Russian language:Южный) was an interceptor aircraft air base in Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia located 17 km south of Kaliningrad. A large mile-wide taxiway ring on west side fed a series of aircraft revetments. There were remote bomber or alert revetments for about 5 aircraft. It is abandoned and in a state of decay as of 2000.

During the Cold War it was home to 689 Gv IAP (689th Guards Interceptor Aviation Regiment) flying MiG-23s in the 1980s and 36 Su-27P by the 1990s.[1] It was also home to 288 OVP (288th Independent Helicopter Regiment) flying Mi-24 K and R models and Mi-8.

689 Gv IAP & 288 OVP based at Uzhnyi moved to Chkalovsk during August 2002.
