Snake Bay Airport is located at Milikapiti, Northern Territory on the northern coast of Melville Island, Australia. The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) built the airfield as a forward fighter aerodrome, during World War II as part of the proposed strategic amphibious operations by Allied forces against the Tanimbar Islands and Kai Islands. It was proposed to accommodate a RAAF Fighter Wing and a United States Army Air Forces Fighter Group. The airfield was operational on 30 August 1944.
