Geocache Description:

Virpiniemen alueen historiaa esittelevä kätkösarja.


A cache serie to present history of Virpiniemi area


Virpiniemen lentoasemahanke.

Suomen valtioneuvosto päätti vuoden 1949 lopussa Oulun lentoaseman rakentamisesta Oulunsalon Kylänpäähän ja lentoaseman vihkiäisiä vietettiin 30. kesäkuuta 1953.

Vähemmän tunnettua historiaa on, että myös Haukipudas kilpaili lentoaseman sijainnista. Jostain syystä Virpiniemi kuitenkin hävisi kilpailun Oulunsalolle ja hanke painui historian hämäriin. Perimätietona kulkee, että lentoasemasuunnitelma eteni jo puiden kaatamiseen alueella ja lentoasema olisi ehkä sijainnut noin tällä paikalla missä kätkö on nyt. Onko sinulla enemmän tietoa asiasta?

Virpiniemi airport project

Finnish goverment made decision to built Oulu airport to Oulunsalo at end of the year 1949 and the airport openings were held at 30th June 1953.

Less known history is that also Haukipudas was competing to get the airport, but for unknown reason Virpiniemi lost the project to Oulunsalo. The story goes that some trees were already cut and airport might perhaps be at location of the cache. Do you happen to know more about the project?
