Boulhaut Air Base.
Category. Statistic.
Location. Morocco.
Opened in. 1955.
Closed in. Boulhaut was closed in about 1963 and turned over to the Moroccan government. Circa ~the end of the Cold War. Outlying parts probably became the basis of Ben Slimane Airport (IATA: GMD, ICAO: GMMB) in circa ~2003. It is an airport serving Ben Slimane, the local town in the Casablanca-Settat region of Morocco. There are several small ruins and installations scattered across the area. Some buildings to the southwest of the runway are in a state of abandonment, possibly after USAF use, along with several water towers and streets which are the only remains of the American presence. A farm's buildings and barns are on what is apparently on the S.E. end of a large and long abandon runway that is mostly covered by a forest.
Operated by. America's Strategic Air Command (SAC).
Owned by. America's Strategic Air Command (SAC).
