Info about military airfield Friedersdorf (Germany)
I am a Glider Pilot at the mentioned airfield (ICAO: EDCF).
We are preparing a "Meeting of Generation's" at the aitfield in Autumn 2017.
We have investigated the former history of our airfield and have found various Information about the Operation on the airfield in the WWII.
Some of information are opposite.
Now my question:
1. Did somebody have any information about flying activities on this airfield between 1939 and 1945 - flying operation and air attacks!
2. Did somebody knows persons who join the Sch./FAR 11 - Flying Scool - operation-field Friedersdorf.
3. Did somebody knows Person who have attack the airfield during the Russian attack of BERLIN? - The airfield is located south east of Berlin.
May we can reach more Information.
