Nanur Airport is an airport in the Wadi Maymun Darraj region of Libya, located approximately 200 km south-southeast of Tripoli in the Libyan desert. Although listed as a civil airport, it appears to function as a reserve Libyan Air Force airfield. It comprises a long runway with a parallel taxiway and a parking ramp. There are no permanent structures visible,[2] nor are there any production oilfields in the area.

World War II

During World War II the airfield, then known as Darragh Airfield was used as a military airfield by the United States Army Air Force Ninth Air Force 57th Fighter Group during the North African Campaign against Axis forces. The 57th flew P-40 Warhawks from the airfield between 19 January-3 March 1943 before moving forward with the British Eighth Army. [3]

The current airfield appears to be overlaid on its World War II predecessor facility.
