 I - When was Nha Trang airport built? 

This airport was originally built by the US military when directly involved in the Vietnam war. After the signing of the Paris Agreement in 1973, based on the law "the US withdrew its military bases from Vietnam and did not interfere in the internal affairs of South Vietnam", the Nha Trang airport was transferred to the Republic of Vietnam government of President Nguyen Van Thieu.
