Me 163B airfields: Brandis

A wartime RAF/USAAF map of Brandis, home of I./JG400 until April 1945. The date of the map is unknown.

Thomas Genth, who works as a photo survey navigator, took some photos of Brandis in 1991. At that time, the Russian air force still occupied the base, with Mi8 and Mi24 helicopters visible south of runway. The revetments for the Su25 attack aircraft were in the process of being removed. Much of the taxiway structure still remains after 46 years! The same applies to the public roads outside the airbase. On his home page, Thomas tries to keep the rememberings of his family's involvement in aviation during the periods of 1914-1918 and 1939-1945 alive, with unique photos!
