Kiska Airfield was located on Kiska Island near North Head and the Japanese main camp area. Also known as "Kiska runway" or "North Head runway".
During early 1943, Japanese forces began construction of a runway at this location, but was never completed due to a lack of tools and equipment. Spotted from the air by Allied aircraft by February 1943, the runway was bombed and strafed by Allied aircraft. The runway was never completed and was abandoned before the Japanese withdrew from Kiska Island.
