I heard about this a long time ago, but no information afterwards:

Does anybody know if it was true, and if so, what happened to the planes and other stuff down there? I'm really curious to find out.

Anyone living in Germany that can tell us?

Rumor has it that unreconstructed Fascists have been living under that East Berlin airfield for the last 61 years and are preparing to use those weapons to raise a Fourth Reich...

THat's scary. Imagine what would happen if, one day, they were digging to put in new electrical wire and and a spark just happened to find that ammo, bombs, or fuel, if it exists? Nevertheless, if it is true, what an extroardinary treasure it would be!

I find it weird that no entrances to these bunkers have been found? I mean how were they planning on actually making use of all this ammo and those planes? there must be some pretty big tunnels somewhere for them to get the planes out to the runways or something...

atleast there was no mention of anything like that I think

Not only that. But consider these days that restored airworthy aircrafts can fetch a price tag well over one million dollars. Its a wonder that testing to see if the theories are true have not been thouroghly investigated.

I was stationed in Germany in the early 70's and it was common knowledge that there were caches weapons and material stored in all over Germany but they were all booby trapped so it was easier to just seal 'em up forget about them. Nobody does booby traps like the Germans.

I also would like to know of any info about this story. When I first heard this, I was pretty excited. Not for the live ammo, but for the supposed whole aircraft. Just imagine...completely intact, original Fw's, 109's, 262'...maybe some Ta's... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

Hmm I though we had a fair ammount of europeans posting in this forum. I was hoping someone in Germany could let us know.

What I am most interested in is the possibility of intact planes....

There are apparently some of the same things of crates full of USAAF aircraft in China. Shipped over, burried, never used.

This reminds me of when I was talking to a family friend the other day. He was just 7 years old during the battle of britain. He also lived near an airfield. he told me the that there was a major difference between Americans and Brits, simply that if a american plane was too damaged (broken landing gear or damaged prop) that the Americans would simply 'bury' their aircraft. While the brits would repair their damaged aircraft to fly again. It was really interesting talking with him about it.

Even if this is true, what kind of threat do 60 year old planes pose to a modern air force? Or even 40 years ago, what kind of threat would these planes have posed? Supposedly that was the idea. Wait 10 or 20 years and try to take over again.

Just another really bad idea by the German High Command at the end of WWII if any of this is true.
