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

General

Böhringen (municipality of Dietingen) is a village in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, about 10 kilometers north-northeast of Rottweil. During the Cold War, a section of the Autobahn A81 motorway about one kilometer west of Böhringen was prepared for military flight operations. In this area, the autobahn runs straight at approx. 3000 m and has a continuous central strip. There is a generously dimensioned parking lot at both ends. According to "Geschichtsspuren" (see link below), an exercise took place in September 1978 during which the highway strip was used by C-160 Transall and C-130 Hercules transport aircraft.
