On November 4, 2010, Apito International detected a small squadron of Yuktobanian fighters on radar approaching the airport. As the Capital District Air Defense Squadron scrambled to neutralize a chemical weapons attack in Bana City, Wardog Squadron was dispatched to the airport to engage the Yuktobanian fighters. Apito's control tower cancelled the landing clearances for all incoming airliners until Wardog had dealt with the threat.
After Wardog destroyed all of the incoming enemy fighters, Apito's control tower personnel spotted several unmarked military transport planes parked on the tarmac and asked them to state their squadron numbers and callsigns. Capital District Air Command quickly responded, stating that no military transports had been deployed to civilian airports at that time. Suddenly, Yuktobanian tanks and air defense vehicles emerged from the transports began firing on Apito's flight terminal.
Wardog engaged and destroyed the Yuktobanian forces inside the airport as well as additional enemy fighters in the surrounding city's airspace. However, with the chemical attack occurring in Bana City, it was difficult for the Osean forces to respond quickly; this led to a short occupation by remnant Yuktobanian forces inside the terminal buildings. These remnants were eventually removed, and Apito is assumed to have resumed normal operations sometime thereafter.
- The airport's namesake comes from the apito, a whistle commonly used in Brazilian music.
