Bellevue Airfield was a private airfield in Bellevue, Washington that closed in 1983. It was situated east of 156th Avenue SE and north of Interstate 90, almost to Phantom Lake. Today, the area is an office park.

When the LDS Seattle Washington Temple was built nearby ca. 1980, the airfield was still in operation and the temple spire included a strobe light.

Remnants of the north end of the old runway could be seen until the construction of the Advanta Office Commons buildings leased by Microsoft (follow coordinates in infobox to the right to see pre-construction aerial imagery).

The only remnants still visible are the red and white lamp posts with two red strobe lights on top still on nearby overpasses.
