The history of the Cold War airfields: Altensalzwedel
by Bert Kondruss


In East Germany, the National People's Army (NVA) was running a radar site near Altensalzwedel, most recently operated by the Funktechnische Kompanie 614 (FuTK-614). This site, only 13 km away from the inner-German border, had a helicopter landing field, where helicopters were on alert in the 1980s to better pursue "border violations" by slow-moving aircraft.

Location of airfield

1,7 km northwest of Altensalzwedel. The helipad was probably located directly at the radar site, perhaps the two concrete pads which are still visible on today's satellite images in the center of site and eastwards.

During the Cold War


Helipad 3184 for Radar company 614 (FuTK-614) of former East German Air Force (NVA LSK/LV).
