The airfield was a primary transport base on the Chinese side of "the Hump" air supply route over the Himalayan Mountains, which was used by Air Transport Command for the transhipment of supplies from airfields in the Assam Valley of India. In 1945, Fourteenth Air Force also used the airfield as a transport base, primarily moving Chinese troops and their equipment from the base to other locations in China. The Americans used the base until the end of December 1945, when their closed their facilities at the station.
After the airfield was closed, the facility appears to have been dismantled and the land returned to agricultural uses. Some straight-lined agricultural roads may be remnants of wartime taxiways or runways, but other than those faint traces, no remains of the facility exist today.
