The Indian Navy has a huge presence in the port city of Visakhapatnam in the Northeastern part of the state. Visakhapatnam is the Headquarters of the Eastern Naval Command. The Navy uses Visakhapatnam airport for its aerial operations which include Helicopters as well as Kiran trainers. 

Random individual warbirds are also found scattered across the state. These include a Gnat on display at the JNTU College of Engineering in the port city of Kakinada. There are atleast two derelict aircraft at the Sainik School at Korukonda in the Vizainagaram district. Several districts have war memorials and it is quite possible a couple of aircraft might have made it to these memorials.
