Bezrechnaya-2 (also given variously as Bezrechnaya, Bezrechnoy, Khodabulak, Khada Bulak North, or Mirnaya) is an interceptor aircraft base in Chita Oblast, Russia located 12 km east of Mirnaya. It features a linear tarmac.

The base has been home to:

  • 22 IAP (22nd Interceptor Aviation Regiment) flying Su-15TM aircraft from 1971-1992. The regiment was subordinate to 50th Guards Air Defence Corps, 14 OA PVO (14th Air Army, Air Defense) from 1988-92.[1]
  • OSAZ (unidentified) (Independent Composite Aviation Regiment) flying Su-15TM.[2] This may be an erroneous identification of 22 IAP listed above.
