PAGES 1 -ENCLOSURES (NO. & TYPE) REMARKS l" Between 19 and 31 March 1951, Stendal-Borstel (N 53/Y 75) airfield was not occupied by an air unit. Although the landing field was serviceable, no planes were seen landing there. The quarters at the field were occupied by Soviet Army soldiers the air force detail eras 25X1 still stationed a-tne 3 2. On 2 April, the field was occupied by six single-engine ng monoplanes with in-line engines and four biplanes. This was an advance detail of a unit which was ~.ocated nreviausl in Koethen (P~2/D 95) . ** *** he occupat on was s unc ange on pr * ** 25X1 25X1 CQ~mP~.ritn This agrees with previous reports. C The alleged transfer of a ground atta.ok regimet 25X1 then to Stendal has not been confirmed It is correct that the unit now stationed in Koethen was previously located in Stendal-Borstelo The 25X1 observation of 6 April 1951, in wh ':.._ a tr:iin loaded with 16 full aircraft crates was enroute from Brest Litovsk supports the possibility that Koethen is to be occupied by a new unit. The Koethen airfield is suitable for occupation by jet aircraft since the runway has b en extended. C t Since the motor vehicle belong to Brent ;round attack units of the Twen y - ourth Air Army, they do not prove the transfer of the ground attack regiment 25X1 from Koethen to Stendal.
