No airfield was identified on either side of the Brandenburg (N 53&Z 23) - Moetzow (N 53/Z 24) road. No Soviet troops were quartered in Moetzow. There was no military object in the surroundings which could be seen at a distance of 2 to 2 km in good visibility.
Comment: Report is considered credible as no information on an airfield near Moetzow has been received ... A landing field, about 400 x 500 meteres, existed near Moetzow during the war.
