Flak Beobachtungsstand Feldflugplatz Soesterberg Holland

Post by Dan Mouritzsen » 30 Jun 2014 15:37

Hi

Is this tower a Flak or a Beobachtungsstand? it does look a bit out of the ordinary!

Could be correct. Probably an early-war construction. I'll keep an eye out for this structure on the Dutch forums.

Here a post from RickM from Stichting Legerplaats Soesterberg 1939-1945 ( Fortificatie Forum )

Beter laat dan nooit: Deze foto is NIET genomen op of bij Soesterberg. De foto heeft met deze omschrijving te koop gestaan op Ebay, maar de verkoper is berucht om het verzinnen van lokaties bij fotos om de verkoopprijs te verhogen. Tegelijkertijd stond een andere foto van dezelfde toren met een geheel andere lokatie als omschrijving.

Better late than never: This photo is NOT taken at or near Soesterberg. The photo has been with this definition for sale on Ebay, but the seller is notorious for inventing locations with photographs to increase the selling price. At the same time there was a different picture of the same tower with a whole other place as description.
