Tiksi West is a large abandoned airfield in Sakha Republic, Russia located about 10 km west of Tiksi. It appears on old Department of Defense navigation charts, and satellite imagery as of 2000 continues to show patterns of disturbed ground. The history of the airfield is unknown but its role as a military facility was likely replaced by Tiksi Airport, which serves the area today.
