Semey Airport (also given as Semey) is an airport in Semey, Kazakhstan, located south-west of the city. It services large airliners. The airfield contains two groups of alert fighter pads. A overrun exists at each end of runway 08/26.
Declassified CIA documents indicated that in the late 1960s, during the height of the Sino-Soviet split, the Soviet Union used this airfield as a bomber staging base for Chinese targets, and at times the Tupolev Tu-22 Blinder was identified here.citation needed * Source: Wikipedia
