Forgotten Airfields

Recommended Posts

After two photos from the website "Forgotten Airfields" I have made this graphic with a modern

Google Satelite View; showing where the former airfield of MFJ-1 near Koolkerke was situated.


MFJ-1 is the short for Marine-Feldjagdstaffel 1. The squadron was formed on 1 February 1917.

They were based at Coolkerke/Koolkerke from 10 September 1917 to 11 November 1918.

The task of the Marine (Navy) units was the protection of Naval facilities and harbours.

Well known aces of the unit were Gotthard Sachsenberg, Bertram Heinrich and Theo Osterkamp.


Here is the link to the interesting site:







I just remembered I had already made a thread about Koolkerke - well, anyway - here is the plan from there again:
