Vaiškūnai airfield (Vaiškūnai aerodromas) was an airfield 70 kilometers northeast of Vilnius.
The airfield was built by order of the Lithuanian SSR (a state within the Soviet Union) Council of Ministers in the 1975-1985 timeframe.
It was used for agricultural activities by state-run Aeroflot. It consisted of a small runway, taxiways and two platforms to the north of the runway. After Lithuanian independence the airfield was abandoned.

Aerial photography of the airfield (Google Earth) suggests the airfield was in reasonable shape until at least 2012. Later photography shows buildings were gradually added, first on the eastern platform, and then on the eastern half of the runway. The airfield is abandoned and therefore officially closed to all traffic.
