Hello Kocjo!

Yes I have a list with all "Fliegerhorste" with coordinates and short infos. Also sketches of the main airfields. But the list is too long to scan or type as you might think.
Interested in specific ones?

Kocjo, I know that airport Lesce - Bled was used by Germans in WWII, but I don't think that it was used by fighter pilots.

Found this:
Im Zweiten Weltkrieg wurde die Untersteiermark nach dem Jugoslawienfeldzug im April 1941 an das Deutsche Reich angeschlossen. Im Zuge dieser Annexion wurde von den deutschen Reichsstellen die Aussiedlung von 15 % der Slowenen aus der Untersteiermark beschlossen und auch durchgeführt. Vier Jahre später, nach der Kapitulation Deutschlands am 8. Mai 1945, ereilte auch die Deutsch-Untersteirer die Katastrophe. 35.000 Deutsch-Untersteirer waren von ihr betroffen.

Are your sources copies of original records Christoph?

I have a number of books on airfields in the UK (eg Airfields of the Eighth Then and Now, Bases of Bomber Command Then and Now and various county based studies) I would be interested in seeing similar publications for Luftwaffe bases, does anyone know of any such sources?

TIA;
