Four planes of the same type were on the southern edge of the field. * The four jet fighters i:,ade practice flights between 30 m d 5:10 P.m., when the weather was good and the sky was partly cloudy. Tie planes too, off in elements of two at an interval of one and a half aircraft lengths. They climbed at an angle of 30 to t.0 degrees, and vanished after 15 seconds. Ten 'minutes later the aircraft approac:ted the field at a very low level and a. ain zoomed in the same way over the m:mir'_c:l.e of the field. The -)lanes landed after 20 minutes and the other two ;dares took off. i, single -engine hifliwing monoplane coming from the cast landed at . the fi-olci at f4:35 .m.

It consisted of four masts about 8 meters high and arranged in a square of about 67 meters. A z,ray green tent was in the middlL; of the square, and a rod about 2 meters long was on the roof o The masts which did not seem to 2. Four searchlights, about 75 meters apart and pointing to the north, were arranged north of the road in the extension of the runway and about 4co search-- motors west of the main rate ;e on ` haelmannstrasse. ** Two other lighta were arranged in the sane way south of t !h road. The searchlights, about 6.: cm in diameter and with red panes, were fitted on poles 0meters high? The southern edge of the field was also marked by landin lihts, the exact arrangement of which could not be seen as the section was blocked during flying activity., A boundary light which was on the ruins in the southwestern section of the field was switched on at night. Additional boun- dary lights in the northeastern section of the field were not clearly visible. Tmjo wooden houses occupied by sentries were at the intersection of Thaelmmm.n- strasse and tme row of searchlights. 3. A radio truce parked under a wooden ro~'f, and a mast about 6 meters high were just beside the railroad line, not far from the first searchli!ht.
