Dohazari Airfield is a former wartime United States Army Air Forces airfield near Dohazari in Bangladesh used during the Burma Campaign 1944-1945. It is now abandoned.

History[edit]

Dohazari was used by the USAAF Tenth Air Force 1st Combat Cargo Group as a supply point for aerial resupply drops over Burma between 30 January and 15 May 1945. The groups 2d and 4th Combat Cargo Squadron remained at the airfield flying C-46 Commando aircraft until 31 October when the base was closed after the war.

After the war the airfield was abandoned and today is part of an agricultural area.
