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?

Witold,

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

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

Re: Flugplatz Lemonsky

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

Gentlemen
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?
