Meiringen airfield officially began operations on 1 December 1941. The opening coincided with the war year 1941, when things did not look at all rosy for our continued existence. Where are we today? What events have shaped the development of the airfield in the meantime? One thing is certain: the differences between then and now are enormous. Some things have stood the test of time and still have the same value today as they did then. Many things have adapted to the present time, had to adapt.
