Winchester Municipal Airport (ICAO: KBGF, FAA LID: BGF) is a city-owned public-use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) southeast of the central business district of Winchester, a city in Franklin County, Tennessee, United States.[1]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned BGF by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[2] (which assigned BGF to Bangui M'Poko International Airport in Bangui, Central African Republic[3]).
