Modlin Airport.

The airport is located in the Mazowieckie Voivodeship, 40 km north-west of Warsaw, next to the international route E 77. It is one of the components of the military complex of military facilities called Modlin Twierdza. For over 60 years it was used as a military base of great importance for Poland's defense. It is equipped with one runway (RWY), with dimensions of 2 500 m x 80 m. In 2000, a decision was made that the Ministry of National Defense would abandon this airport. Currently (2009), the prospect of a career as a civil airport, supporting the Okęcie airport, opens up before the airport.
