The history of the Cold War airfields: Sülte


About 10 km south of Schwerin there was a reserve airfield of the Soviet armed forces in the area of Sülte / Boldela / Buchholz in the GDR. It had a 3 km runway with a grass surface and was prepared for the use of radio beacons. There is no information about the use of this field. Today the airfield is closed.
