Krasnoyarsk Northeast was an air base in Russia located 4 km northeast of Krasnoyarsk. The airfield was the western end of the ALSIB Alaska-Siberia air route for Lend-Lease aircraft during World War II including Bell P-39 Airacobras and North American B-25 Mitchells.[1] The former airfield has been converted into apartment complexes. There was an Antonov An-2 maintenance facility, which is now gone. It was a utilitarian airfield with An-2, An-24, and An-6 aircraft, probably now based at Krasnoyarsk Yemelyanovo Airport.
