Tour Report: Soviet Airfield LT [Revisit]

For a spontaneous tour in May 2019 together with two friends, who were relatively new to the hobby of urban exploration, we decided to revisit two abandoned Soviet military facilities that were pretty easy in terms of access and had only little potential of encountering a security service patrolling the place.

The first spot that we drove to was an abandoned former airfield that I had first visited in 2016. I do like revisits, because they give you the chance to see what effect time (and people) has had on buildings, and because you can take shots that you may have missed the first time.

After a drive of a little more than two hours, we arrived at the location. It was exactly like I remembered: A parking space right in front - and no fences around the hangars. Only the former reconnaissance school had been surrounded with a game fence, but that fence had already been pushed down in a lot of places, so we were free to move around.

It was late in May, so compared to my first visit, which was in November, the place was much greener, and the decay looked much more intense and colorful, which I really enjoyed. We took our time exploring every small building that we could find, checking out all the rooms and looking into every basement. It took about two hours, then we got back to the cars - we had yet another Soviet place to visit...
