Afrikanda is a military air base in Murmansk Oblast, Russia. It is located just north of the village of the same name.
Though it is built for fighter operations with 30 revetments, it has largely served the interceptor aircraft role. It was home to the 431 IAP (431st Fighter Aviation Regiment), which operated 39 Su-15TM jets and a number of Su-27 aircraft (some sources give this as 470th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment). In 1978 a Sukhoi Su-15 was launched from Afrikanda to intercept Korean Air Flight 902, a Boeing 707 which was later forcefully landed.
It is possible that Afrikanda may have closed around 2000 due to budget cuts.
