Maladzyechna (also Molodechno) was an air base in Belarus located 8 km south of Maladzyechna. It was a 1960s-era attack or interceptor base. Towards the end of the Cold War it was plowed under for farmland. The geometrics remained visible on Google Earth imagery as of 2006, and a small propeller airplane was visible suggesting the airfield has remained as a minor airstrip.
