    I decided it was worth the 8 Euros as the airfield is still in use, partially as a flying club, go kart track, sight seeing trips of the area in an autogyro and by the police for tactical driving and as a firearms range. Given the above, I decided that wandering across it on my own was not the best idea….
    Enquiries about the tour can be made at the airfield, I think it runs twice a day and basically you get into a minibus with a guide who drives you around. His knowledge was excellent and he took the time to explain everything twice-once in German as that’s what most of the tourists are and again in English for my benefit.
    Looking out towards Griefswalder Oie where there were telemetry stations for the rocket test launches.

    The lake between the airfield and the museum, there are the remains of a Lancaster still in it apparently.

    Unfortunately the tour is a drive round while talking, so there wasn’t much opportunity for photos. That said it did provide an excellent recce for places to explore further…..
    Parachute Packing Building
    Once done with the tour, I found a nice place to park up so I could trek to the parachute packing building near the airfield that we’d passed in the tour bus. This was a bit of a trek through the woods but this in itself was an eye opener. Looks like the NVA just bulldozed equipment into the woods off the taxiways!

    Whole load of kit just buried in old bomb crater-lots of finds like this.

    Presumably from the high grade stainless steel this is off an aircraft – could it be an ammo box? If anybody can identify it-it would be appreciated..

    This is actually a partially buried jet engine!!

    All the hot water for heating was piped to the building from a central power station, this is the point of entry.
