Naval Outlying Field Barin (IATA: NHXICAO: KNBJFAA LID: NBJ) is a United States Navy airfield located in Foley, a city in Baldwin County, Alabama, United States.[1]


NOLF Barin has two asphalt paved runways: 9/27 is 4,012 by 300 feet (1,223 x 91 m) and 15/33 is 4,000 by 150 feet (1,219 x 46 m).[1]

In 2010, officials from NAS Whiting Field announced plans to expand the runways for several NOLFs they operate (including NOLF Barin) to facilitate the use of the T-6 Texan II training aircraft, which is replacing the aging fleet of T-34 Mentors. But those plans have come under heavy opposition by some residents who are worried about losing homes and land in the process.[2]
