Its name is derived from its location, about 50 kilometres west of Mogadishu. In the late 2000s, K50 served as Mogadishu's main Airstrip while Aden Adde International Airport was briefly shut down due to the ongoing War in Somalia. Daallo Airlines operated routes to and from K50 at one time.
The airstrip was mentioned in the book Quiet Warriors: Veteran's Military Service Memories, written by Blake E. Edwards.
