They must be totally nuts down there in china. Wtf do these eights and strange symbols on the "runways" mean??? I only know these paintings from this from schoolyards where they practice driving school...

I don't see a single vehicle air or land anywhere! I think you are right about the ground school thing. it maybe a track pilots may have to run with thier MiGs

Anyway, when you enable the transportation layer, that 'object' is been marked as an airport.

The "runways" are just 900 meters long - this is also speaking against the theory that this is a regular airport. But you can clearly see that the road from the hangars to the second runway northwest is heavily used.

Still we don't know what this place is about...

It's been a long while, but I'll put my comments here with the official file posting, rather than the one in the forum:

What I find most interesting is that I don't know that those are actually used as runways anymore. There are plenty of tire marks, but they're much more consistent with vehicle tires. There are plenty of trucks sitting around, and the markings on what I think used to be runways are much more like parking locations. One runway (the most north-western one) has a set of lines laid out like a course, and there's a lot of markings between the lines. The north-eastern one has lines, but doesn't seem as heavily used.

It looks to me as though the airport has been converted into a vehicle training school, though it might technically still be with their Air Force.

To the South of the "runways" you can quite clearly see military hangars with blast doors, but no sign of aircraft.

The bottom right runway shows signs of once having aircraft parked.

This place reminds me of a naval airbase, short runways representing aircraft carriers.
