Airfield Survey in 1954
In 1953 and 1954, survey tours took place in the Federal Republic of Germany to identify future air bases for the German Air Force. Old airfields were visited and assessed, if a field can be used, if technical facilities and housing are available und if an extension of the runway up to 2500 m (8203 ft) or 3000 m (9843 ft) is possible.
For "Wittmundhaven" was found in 1954: The old movement area 1600 m x 500 m (5250 ft x 1641 ft) is fully used agriculturally. Three former runways are completely destroyed, one of them 3000 m; no quarters; 5 smaller hangars, each with 400 m² were converted to a homestead; there are supply or aeronautical installations. The field cannot be used, but a new runway would be possible up to 3000 m (9843 ft); all installations needs to be rebuild.
In a distance of 5 km, an additional airfield 3000 m x 500 m (9843 ft x 1641 ft) at the former operational airfield Brokzetel is available, currently used agriculturally.
