Target Category: Airfield -  
Built in 1936 southwest of the village of Achmer beside the Midland Canal. From 1941 there was a northwest camp for prisoners of the Red Army. The first aircraft based here were Dornier Do 17 bombers. Achmer also served as a test site for defensive weapons as well as the Messerschmitt Me 262 jet fighter "Swallow". In Early April 1945, the British occupied the base and made it a temporary base for the Allied aircraft. http://www.relikte.com/achmer
