Handorf - Munster, Germany

Target Category: Airfield -  
Construction was started in 1935 and was completed in 1937. Although attacked several times by Allied bombers, the damage and destruction never led to a complete cessation of air operations. On 3 April 1945, German military units destroyed as much as possible ahead of advancing American troops, who occupied the airfield 5 April 1945. After the war, it was under British rule and housed refugees, orphans and the elderly in undamaged or easily-repaired buildings. Today the site serves as a training area.
