Pandaveswar Airfield is a former wartime United States Army Air Forces airfield in India used during the Burma Campaign 1944-1945. It is now abandoned.

HistoryEdit

Pandaveswar was a major Tenth Air Force combat airfield, hosting numerous groups between 1942-1945. Known units assigned were:

After the combat cargo unit moved out in January 1946, it appears the airfield was closed. Today, the remains of both main runways (16/34, 04/22) are visible in aerial photography, along with numerous dispersal pads in vegetative areas along with several taxiways. The majority of the support station has been dismantled, however some derelict buildings and streets can still be seen, along with a village that appears to have been built on the site.
