Nang Tao Airport was an airport in Shanghai. Both Lao Che Air Freight and Pan American Airways used the airfield.

In 1935, Indiana Jones, Willie Scott, and Short Round fled to this airport following the brawl in Club Obi Wan, catching a flight originally intended for Jones, Round, and Wu Han. As they were hurried to their plane by their contact, Earl Weber, they did not notice that the Ford Tri-Motor Airplane that they were boarding was owned by Lao Che, through his Lao Che Air Freight company. As Jones gloated to Lao Che, who had arrived too late to stop the plane, Lao Che had the last laugh as the plane's pilot and co-pilot caught their boss' attention.

Behind the scenes

The scenes at the airport in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom were filmed at a closed military base, Hamilton Air Force Base in Marin County, California. In the background, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg make cameo appearances handling luggage.

Nang Tao Airport is a fictional name, but it is re-used in the Doctor Who novel The Shadow of Weng-Chiang.
