PostSubject: RAF Uetersen    9/4/2014, 23:40

Source Wikipedia (Ge):  Die British Air Force of Occupation nutzte den Platz weiterhin, neben britischen Jagdflugzeugen lagen hier nach Kriegsende bis zu fünf Staffeln kanadischer Spitfire XIV/XVI des 126. Wing (Geschwader), die im März 1946 aufgelöst wurden. Von November 1948 bis März 1950 beheimatete RAF Uetersen die 85. Group, die während der Berliner Luftbrücke die von der United States Air Force benutzten RAF-Stationen verwaltete. Diese unterhielt eine Kommunikationsstaffel, die mit verschiedenen Flugzeugen ausgerüstet war (Anson, Procter, Auster, Oxford, Spitfire, Dominie, Mosquito). Die Royal Air Force blieb anschließend noch bis Ende November 1955 in Uetersen.

Uetersen was occupied by the RAF who continued use (after the war) of the site as flying base.  Alongside the RAF fighter aircraft up to 5 Squadrons of Canadians with Spitfires (Mk XIV / XVI) from 126 Wg RCAF were based here and withdrawn in  March 1946.  From Nov 48 to Mar 50 RAF Uetersen was home to 85 Gp USAAF who administered the RAF base during the Berlin airlift.  A communications squadron was based here equipped with a variety of aircraft (Anson, Proctor, Auster, Oxford, Spitfire, Dominie, Mosquito) - the RAF remained at the base unril the end of 1955.
