German Secret Underground Airfields

Post by Edward L. Hsiao » 16 Oct 2019 04:33

Gentlemen,
Were there any discussions in the past about German secret underground airfields during WWII? Are there any good websites that deals with them? The Luftwaffe had plenty of them in the Reich. How effective were their camoflage?

They did not have underground airfields, only factories.

Hello
What comes closest would be Tempelhof Airfield in Berlin, both underground factory and airfield :-) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_Tempelhof_Airport. Regards

Hi Edward,
You are again stating as a fact something which is entirely speculative (i.e. "The Luftwaffe had plenty of them in the Reich"). Why do you keep doing this?
Why not just ask an honest question, such as, "Did Germany build underground airfields?", and explain why you think this might be a possibility and a few sources.
A disappointed Sid.
