Description

See military airbase on Wikipedia

An airfield is a place where military planes take off and land. They are different from civilian airports in that they do not provide for large volume of passenger transits, and cargo handling is not processed by the customs and immigration facilities. Some military air forces combine use of civilian airports with the hosting of military units.
