The Romanian Air Force 57th Air Base (Baza 57 Aeriană) was an air base located near Constanţa, at the Mihail Kogălniceanu International Airport. The base was disbanded in August 2004 due to the Romanian Armed Forces reorganisation program and the retirement of the MiG-29s which were based here.

The military sector of the Mihail Kogălniceanu International Airport is currently an annex of the 86th Air Base hosting the 863rd Helicopter Squadron (operating IAR-330L).
