During the war, 40 km away from Uzhgorod, there was a Luftwaffe airfield (PHOTOS)

At the time of the Second World War, forty kilometers away from Uzhgorod, near the village of Winne, in what is now Zemplínska Šírava, there was a Luftwaffe airfield. Last year, historian Marcus Mossh accidentally found pictures of that airfield in German Duisburg, at the dump. They were most likely taken by a German soldier. The airfield served the German fighters and bombers. It was opened on the eighth of September, 1939. The airfield then was used for air attacks on Poland. Slovakia, as a military ally of Germany, also participated in this campaign.

 The airfield was only a field without a concrete lane or lighting. After the military campaign against Poland, Nazi Germany used it in the war against the Soviet Union. After the war the airfield was destroyed, and then flooded with water - now, the known reservoir Zemplínska Šírava is situated there.

Подивись на карті Ужгород-Вінне -43 км. Про аеродром добре відомо словацьким історикам, втім до минулого року не мали доказів. Лише завдяки німекькому колезі вони їх отримали. А історію треба в школі вчити, шановний "Корзо". аеродроми Люфтваффе в Англії і не могли бути, Німеччина ніколи не захоплювала територію цієї країни

Михаловце в 30 км от Ужгорода, а Ширава ближе. Ну а о фото можно сказать что угодно, например, что это под Парижем или в Англии.
