Tanagra Air Base (ICAO: LGTG) is a large military air base situated in Tanagra, Greece. The air base is adjacent to Hellenic Aerospace Industry facilities. It is used as the home-base of 114th Combat Wing (114 Πτέρυγα Μάχης, 114 ΠΜ) of the Hellenic Air Force.


From the World War II until early 50's, Tanagra Air Base was used as a complementary airfield. After that period, and with NATO contribution, it was upgraded to a main air base of the Hellenic Air Force. From 1975 to 2003 Dassault Mirage F1CG were operated from Tanagra. From 2007 newly acquired Dassault Mirage 2000-5 are operated by the 331st All Weather Squadron.
