There's another airforce base blurred near the German border in a place called 'Oldenzaal'. There has been a Dutch Military Airforce Base where the
last F-16 squadron (313) was stationed. That base was closed at the 1st of January 2006.
Some info about that base:
ICAO code : EHTW
2 start strips
06-24 Length: 2987 meters. Width: 50 meter.
11-29 Length: 2000 meters. Width: 25 meter.
Nav Aid; the military radiobeacon EHTW TACAN ch44 and the radiobeacon TWENTHE NDB (TWN 335.5 kHz).
These are the coordinates :
52° 16' 37" North
06° 53' 24" East
I live in Enschede and Oldenzaal is just arround the corner. I went a lot of times to the that airforce base just to spot the F-16's and other
aircrafts. And I also have worked at the base just for a while and I do know that there's nothing what the goverment not want us to know about. Yes
there are a couple of hangars and yes they do have 2 strips and that's it. Nothing more, nothing less. But it's still strange that it's blurred in
Last year our goverment decided to use that airforce base only for commercial purposes and NOT for military purposes anymore. And then my question...
if it's just for commercial purposes...why do they have to blur that base?
by the way : i'm dutch so my english writing is not perfect
