The situation is similar to Vyškov Airfield. Here, too, the runway of a reserve (?) airfield was covered with a motorway and the motorway was prepared for flight operations.



General aviation airfield.


The former runway is now partly overbuilt with the motorway. A new runway is in operation south of the motorway.
