Re: Ebay: Fliegerhorst, landing areas, hangars, workshops

Hi Gents,
Can someone ID this place with that "UBO" (Unidentified Building Object) in background?
Thanks.
Regards,
Franck.

Possibly a prefabricated heated workshop hangar? The Germans made quite a few of them for use in Russia after experiencing the brutal winter of 1941/42.

Thanks Larry, nice try but this is taken early in 1940 and can be an airship hangar view from one end or, better, a gaz tank ... I don't know precisely but I believe one should know among our German fellow members.
Cheers,
Franck.

Generic ? Generic, generic ... Got it ... I'm afraid it is: one of those "Döberitz type hangar" view from rear ?
I'd prefer to be wrong but ...

Hi Michiel,
This is, unfortunately, one of these "generic" hangar built everywhere: Döberitz, Jüterbog-Damm, at least.
Like here: https://me109.info/display.php?a=e&l...JIecnsKgWb68Yo
Left the ground pavement which is quite noticeable
Regards,
Franck.
