The Airfields of South Vietnam 1967 — 1973

As a result of digitizing a number of Tactical Aerodrome Directories, it seemed like creating a database of all the airfields would be a logical next step.  This has been done and I am testing the result here.

There are two ways in which you can view this data.  You can see the data as placemarks in Google Earth or you can simply search the database for a name.  Many of the fields had more than one name, but all the known "official" names that appeared in the Tactical Aerodrome Directories from 1967 to 1973 are included.

If you wish to use Google Earth to display the data, use this file:


If you have Google Earth installed, that link will simply start it up and whisk you off to South Vietnam.  You may want to save the file to your local machine and you can do that by right-clicking on the link and selecting "Save Target As...".  Google Earth is free and it can be downloaded from Google at this link:

If you wish to search the database, just use the form, below.

Enter all or a portion of field name:
