Severomorsk-2 (also Safonovo (USSR), Murmansk Northeast (US)) is a naval air base in Murmansk Oblast, Russia located 7 km southwest of Severomorsk and just 11 km northeast of Murmansk. It is a relatively small airfield compared to nearby Severomorsk-1.

The primary operator of Severomorsk-2 has been 403 ODLAP (403rd Independent Long Range Aviation Regiment) operating Beriev Be-12PS search and rescue aircraft. However Google Earth high-resolution images show that the airbase is unattended and in a state of decay, and it is probable that this regiment may have been moved to Severomorsk-1 for efficiency purposes.
