    Default Polish airfields circa 1938-39

    Would anyone have a list of Polish airfields/camps and their functions for the immediate pre-war period, please? I'm interested in an airfield or camp at Lesna near Baranowicze - and would like to know if it was an operational airfield or an administrative site used for basic training of airmen?

    I can't seem to find anything on the internet.

    Thank you very much, Mojmir, the links are extremely useful and confirm what I suspected in respect of Leśna. I am in your debt.

    As you live in the Czech Republic, I wonder if you could confirm that the town of Jablonica was on the border between Czechoslovakia and Hungary in 1939?

    Hi Brian,

    Look at this map: http://oi43.tinypic.com/23rramw.jpg

    Green area – the territory occupied by Hungary.
    Jablonica is between Skalica – Trnava, 20 miles N from the town of Senec near Bratislava. Senec was (in 1939) on the Hungarian border.

    Also https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sloven...:SNP_map11.png

    But Jablonica was on the border of „Schutzzone“ between Reich and Slovakia.
