Baltimore Municipal Airport ("Harbor Field") is a former airport and United States Air Force airfield about 6 miles southeast of Baltimore, Maryland. (The western half of the airport was within the city of Baltimore, whereas the eastern half was in Dundalk, in Baltimore County.)

Construction began in 1929 and was completed in 1941. It closed on 30 December 1960.

Today the former airfield is the site of the Dundalk Marine Terminal, a multi-use shipping facility of the Port of Baltimore.
