The Mackall Army Airfield is located at Camp Mackall, a U.S. Army training facility and sub-installation of Fort Bragg tucked away in the pine trees of North Carolina. Camp Mackall is the location of initial qualification training for the U.S. Army Special Forces. The airfield was constructed alongside the camp in 1942, and features three runways arranged in a triangular shape, only two of which are open and usable today. The "center sod" between the runways is also used as an air taxi area for helicopter operations, as well as a drop zone.
Facilities on the airfield include four "POL points" (Petroleum, Oil, and Lubricants) for refueling, an air traffic control tower staffed by Department of Defense contract controllers, and an Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) station. Aircraft that frequently visit the airfield include Blackhawks, Chinooks, C-130s, C-17s, and V-22 Ospreys, among others. Also included in the scenery is the nearby Luzon Drop Zone.
