Faizabad airfield (OAFZ) appx 3.5 miles northwest of the town of Faizabad. Built during the Soviet occupation,
Faizabad airfield is somewhat unique in the world, notable for the Pierced Steel Planking (PSP) runway along it's full width and length!
A new runway made of more common materials was constructed parallel to the steel runway as a replacement for the original strip.
