Sahmaw Airfield is a former wartime United States Army Air Forces airfield in Burma used during the Burma Campaign 1944-1945. It is now abandoned.

History

The airfield was a temporary combat airfield used by the 33d Fighter Group between 26 December 1944 and 4 May 1945, flying P-47 Thunderbolts and P-38 Lightnings. It was also used by the 71st Liaison Squadron, between 15 October and 16 January 1945, flying L-4 Piper Cubs and UC-64A Norseman light aircraft.

After the Americans moved out, the airfield was abandoned and was returned to agricultural use.
