    The airport located in Bagicz, which during World War II was the base of the Third Reich’s air force, began to be built in complete secrecy in 1935. The entire population was displaced and it was announced that a Persil washing powder factory would be built there. In the years 1945-1992, the airport was in the hands of the Soviet Army, and at that time, incl. the longest runway was built.

    Currently, part of the airport is occupied by the Baltic Aeroclub, which popularizes air sports among children and youth. Near the airport, you can also see reinforced concrete shelters of the granite type, characterized by an unusual oval form.
