Location of Berca Airfield, Libya

Berca Airfield is an abandoned military airfield in Libya, which is located in the vicinity of the Al Birkah suburb of Benghazi. Its precise location is unknown as the urban growth of Benghazi has absorbed the former airfield's location.

During World War II it was used by the United States Army Air Force during the North African Campaign by the 98th Bombardment Group, which flew B-24 Liberator heavy bombers from the airfield between 26 March-4 April 1943.
