Khodynka Aerodrome (officially Frunze Central Aerodrome) was an airport in Moscow, Russia located 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) northwest of the centre of the city. It was the only airport in the city until the opening of Vnukovo in 1941. It is no longer active and today the whole site has been redeveloped for other uses. It was home to a large number of stored aircraft from Sukhoi and Mikoyan-Gurevich (which were moved to Lukhovitsy).
