File Description:
Hamat is a village near the coast of Lebanon, around 25 miles north of Beirut. The airport runway was built during the civil war to the west of Hamat in the late 1970's, between Hamat and another village called Wuajh Al Hajar. The intention was have an alternative to Beirut airport, which could be (and often was) closed by shell fire from any or all of the sides involved in the civil war, or by bombing by those who were not directly part of the civil war but occasionally joined in. It has been used for drag racing, occasional freefall parachuting (this may continue) and is now an army base with mostly helicopter use. The runway is around 5,600 feet of asphalt, 90 feet wide and aligned 02/20. There is no lighting. The apron is set well back from the runway and has hangars at each end; one set is four hangars long, and at the other end of the apron there are three hangars. There are also the remains of some radar to the west of the apron, bombed (in 1982?). The runway has been repositioned and the surrounding landclass modified to reduce one village to it's approximate actual size and to create a second village which was missing entirely. An intrusive road has been deleted, and the airfield grass area also modified.
