Hi everybody
I've already read it, however, found nothing about II./JG53, which operated from there for six days. Is it Nemakščiai and Lemonsky the same place?

Re: Flugplatz Lemonsky

"Lemonsky" has been pretty well covered here, including entries (posts) from both you and me:

I'm guessing you still haven't found it?

Next to the village is Legotiškė so I wonder if it is a distortion of the name retranslated from Russian. Literally it should have been Леготиске, but as Russians used phonetic transliteration it was rather Леготишки. A guess, as I cannot find an exact Russian name.

Re: Flugplatz Lemonsky
Than You for so numerous contribution. I've tought about Lemansky location and I've got somewhat neck-breaking idea. I found a place called Limani in Latvia, it was a parish, which in Russian sounds spmething like Limanski. Meybe it is the misterious Lemonsky?
