During September–c. 4 October 1945 World War II, the airfield was used as a reconnaissance base by the 8th Reconnaissance Group of United States Army Air ForcesTenth Air Force. It was home to several P-51 Mustang, B-25 Mitchell and P-38 Lightning airframes during that time. After WWII this airstrip was closed and left abandoned.Presently the airforce is trying to open a new base over there. All these days it was used by the local inhabitants and the NCC for physical training purpose.The hangars and small quarters of the then period are still in good condition and hope they would be restored soon.
