SKYBIRD's VISITORS & MOVEMENTS DRESDEN 1955

After World War II, the Soviet Air Force occupied Dresden Klotzsche airfield. At the end of 1954, the last based Pe-2 and Stsche-2 left the airfield.
However, the Soviet troops were reluctant to vacate the buildings and hangers they were using due to the good state of construction. The airfield was still in use in 1955 by the Soviets.
So there was also a lot of delay during the development of the GDR aviation industry, as troops of the Soviet Army (no longer the Soviet Air Force) continued to use the site of the former air war school (LKS Luftkriegsschule Nr. 1 "Hermann Göring") until 1958. Troops from the GDR were also based in Klotzsche and blocked the development of the aviation industry as well.
