About

Yongsan Garrison (Korean: 용산기지; Hanja: 龍山基地), located in the Yongsan District of Seoul, South Korea, is an area which serves as the headquarters for U.S. military forces stationed in South Korea, known as United States Forces Korea (USFK) and as United States Army Garrison Yongsan (USAG-Yongsan), under the supervision of the Installation Management Command Pacific Region. From 1910 to 1945 it served as headquarters for the Imperial Japanese Army. The USFK headquarters is scheduled to relocate outside of Seoul at Camp Humphreys in 2019.

K-16 (Seoul Air Base)
Address: 145-2 Simgok-dong, Sujeong-gu, Seongnam-si,
Gyeonggi-do, South Korea
In Use: 1950-Present
Base Type: Army

The name was given during the Korean War. The American troops found the Asian names to be very difficult to spell and remember, therefore the superiors decided to assign each of them a number, along with the letter K. This base was the 16th one on the American map, hence the name. It has two long runways. One of them benefits from an ILS (Instrument Landing System) equipment. The equipment is used to guide the pilots when landing. Despite its size and mission, K-16 Air Base is used by a lot of flight companies, including the presidential one. Aside from the South Korean president, other important personalities use it to land in the country. Other than that, the small military installation is also famous for being open to civilians every year during an impressive show and exercise of techniques – the Seoul Air Show. It is held annually and aside from civilians, multiple local personalities attend it to applaud the excellence of the South Korean air force.
