C-272

Delete this entry as it is a duplicate. When I edited this site, it created another C-272 with more accurate data. This is the old uncorrected site.

G-239

I question whether this airfield is still used as the north end is being developed as something else. See: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=38.198715&lon=127.222849&z=18&m=b&search=G-239%20Airfield; and https://www.google.com/maps/@38.1987959,127.2205033,213a,35y,90h,41.59t/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en

C-406

Your location shows this facility in the parking lot/access road to what looks like an observation location. In addition an airplane (O-1A) is shown adjacent to this facility, but no indication how it got there. See: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=38.319326&lon=128.110344&z=19&m=b&search=Not%20an%20ROK%20Military%20Outpost; and http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=38.319557&lon=128.110727&z=19&m=b&search=O-1A%20%E8%A6%B3%E6%B8%AC%E6%A9%9F%20. The heliport is actually located a short distance down the road from this facility with no runways as indicated in your site. See: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=38.318124&lon=128.109869&z=19&m=b&search=C-406%20Heliport. What's the story? Please advise. I will edit this site to indicate this as C-406 heliport unless someone can demonstrate this is incorrect.

Bongamri (C 263) Heliport

There is an adjacent helipad. See: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=37.912763&lon=127.011703&z=19&m=b&search=Bongamri%20(C-263)%20Heliport

H-163

Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_Army_installations_in_South_Korea) indicates that Camp Giant (H-163) is closed.

Picture of TIBC1

H-163 Heliport

Camp Giant Heliport (H-163) is located @[37°50’02”N X 126°48’56”E]; Camp Custer North Heliport (C-116) is located @[37°50’03”N X 126°48’56”E]. Is it possible that these two facilities are one and the same or is there a mistake in one or both of them? Please advise as I am totally confused. There is a heliport at H-163.

Picture of TIBC1

C-161 Heliport

There is no sign of any heliport at this location.

Yeonpyeong-Myeon Heliport

It would appear that this heliport is associated with a nearby hospital to which it is connected by road.

N-208 Helipad

This is an athletic field with no helicopter markings "H": http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=37.832436&lon=124.714206&z=19&m=b&search=N-208%20Helipad and https://www.google.com/maps/@37.830828,124.7144291,250a,35y,39.46t/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en

"Okchuk-tong Heliport" which I just submitted looks like a better candidate as it is appropriately marked and appears to be a military installation. Check out: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=37.843934&lon=124.705631&z=19&m=b&search=Okchuk-tong%20Heliport; and https://www.google.com/maps/@37.8425274,124.7054176,207a,35y,39.47t/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en-US

Mokpo Airport

Airport is closed as a commercial airport, but remains open as a military airbase.

G-712 Airport?

Is this really an "airport" or a "highway strip," something you would see in North Korea?

Picture of TIBC1

G-806 Airport

I don't think this is still an airport. It looks more like a long drainage ditch. Check out: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.858170&lon=129.208789&z=17&m=b&search=G-806%20Airfield

C-719 Heliport

C-719 Heliport may be no more. Check out: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.876224&lon=127.132427&z=19&m=b&search=C-719%20Heliport

The area where this heliport was located has been redeveloped into high rise apartment buildings.

G-500 Airfield?

I don't see an airfield, but I do see a heliport. Which is it? Please advise.
