Target: STADE GERMANY Airfield (29 aircraft) - (53.5606, 9.5006)

Construction began in 1935, with the base disguised as a civilian project. The first use was that of a multi-engine piloting school. In 1939 a new large hangar and three concrete runways were built. In April 1940, the air transport of parachute and mountain troops from Stade began the occupation of Scandinavia. In 1941, night-fighters were stationed here. On 18 April 1945 aircraft and facilities were destroyed in advance of occupation by the British on 1 May 1945 who completely removed the runways In 1951, it was given back to the German authorities who used it as a training base. Today it is a residential and commercial area. The former training area is a nature retreat.
