Location of Uka Airport in Russia
Uka Airport was an airfield in Kamchatka Krai, Russia, located 11 km northwest of Uka. In recent decades, it was probably a civilian airfield, but the configuration and runway length suggests that it may have been a military airfield during the 1950s or 1960s. This airfield was used during the Second World War by US airplanes on their way to Siberia for Lend-Lease program. Near the airfield is a very big old antenna built for the Russian space programme in 1950s.
Satellite imagery (Google Earth) from 2016-09-22 shows substantial vegetation overgrowth on the runway, suggesting the airport has not been operated in several years prior.
