Brochocin Airfield on a US satellite image from 26 June 1975
- With this picture it remains unclear which areas can be attributed exactly to the airfield, especially as the view is obstructed by clouds. The facilities with the large concrete areas are clearly visible at 1. The airfield could be at 2 and reach as far as to the Brochocin Łukaszów road. This would give the runway length of about 1.500 m (5.000 feet) indicated on the US map and the landing direction 28 indicated by the Soviets. Interesting, however, is the square structure west of the road (at the black cross), which could also represent the western end of the airfield. But then the length would be approx. 3,400 m and the orientation rather 11/29. The area of 1463 hectares handed over according to bicc in 1992 also remains unclear. The area with the facilities and the runway up to the road has approx. 220 hectares. Even if the area west of the road is included, it is only about 300 hectares. And even with the large area north of the facilities, the value only increases to about 550 hectares.
