Feldluftpark Pori


Feldluftpark 3/XI Pori was a Luftwaffe aviation equipment depot located at Pori airfield in Finland, from where Germans dispatched aircraft to the north and carried out major overhauls. The depot was operational during the Continuation War 1941-44, after which the airfield was partially detonated and abandoned by retreating Germans.

In 2019, a project was started to research the history of the airfield and the material culture left behind by the German soldiers. Research, which includes excavations, archival work and interviews, will continue across the coming years, culminating in an exhibition and the publication of results.

Advances in research can be followed on this website, along with events, field schools and other ways to be involved with the project.
