Pleiku Air Base is a former air force base in Vietnam. It was established by the South Vietnamese Air Force (SVNAF) in 1962 at an undeveloped airstrip, and was used by the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War in the II Corps Tactical Zone of South Vietnam. It was seized by the Vietnam People's Army in March 1975 and was abandoned for many years. Today, the facility has been redeveloped as Pleiku Airport.
