General William J. Fox Airfield (IATA: WJF, ICAO: KWJF, FAA LID: WJF) is a county owned, public airport in Los Angeles County, California five miles northwest of Lancaster, California. Locally known as Fox Field, the airport serves the Antelope Valley.

The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015 categorized it as a general aviation facility. There are limited scheduled cargo operations, and the U.S. Forest Service has an airtanker base there, which becomes one of the main hubs of firefighting efforts during fire season. An Antelope Valley Hospital helicopter is based here. Fox Field is also the home of the Milestones of Flight Aviation Museum.

On August 13, 2009, a Los Angeles Police Department helicopter made a har landing at the airfield during a training exercise.

General William J. Fox Airfield covers 1,217 acres (493 ha) at an elevation of 2,351 feet (717 m) above sea level. Its one runway, 6/24, is 7,201 by 150 feet (2,195 x 46 m) asphalt.

In the year ending August 10, 2011 the airport had 81,851 aircraft operations, average 224 per day: 97% general aviation, 2% air taxi, and 1% military. 157 aircraft were then based at this airport: 89% single-engine, 8% multi-engine, 2% helicopter, and 1% jet.
