AERODROME - VAINODE

Vainode
NOTES
  • The Vainode airfield was in use already in the First World War. Vainode had two fixed large single sheds (field sheds) which can each berth (2,189,600 cub ft) airships. Airship sheds carried the names Walter and Walhalla.
  • July 23, 1939 - Aviation Festival at Vainode. This coincides with the christening of their "new aerodrome" - not certain if it is a new location or a rebuild of the old one.
  • 1941 - 1944 (German Occupation) - (Luftwaffe units based in Vainode during the German occupation)
