Tour Report: Soviet Airfield S.

It's no secret that I am really a fan of the Soviet relics you can find in Eastern Germany, so whenever I get the chance, I have to check them out. My wife isn't too much into all the military stuff, but she is fond of a nice walk in the park, so to speak, so when the opportunity arose for a quick stop at this abandoned Soviet airfield on the way up North towards the end of last years summer vacation, of course we took it.
The weather was great, but as a lot of times in these locations, parking was a bit of a problem. There were no regular parking places, so we just parked in an industrial area near a junkyard and a dog training area. There were a bunch of obscure-looking people around, but the attraction of the airfield was bigger that our desire for security.
The parking spot we chose offered direct access to the old airfield. We didn't have too much time since we still had a couple of hundred kilometers to go to our friend's place, so we quickly went and we only checked out a couple of buildings and the two large hangars.
The hangars were really cool, because there are only the carcasses of rusty steel and rotting wood left.
I hop that we will have the chance to come back and check out the rest of this huge place.
