Geocache Description:


(DK) INFO TIL TUREN: Har du ikke flycertificat eller går på meget lange stylter, vil ekstra lange arme være uundværlige visse steder.

(EN) INFO for the TOUR: If you don't have flycertificat or go on very long stilts, extra long arms will be indispensable in certain places.

(DK) Denne serie er udlagt som et minde til vores gode Geocaching-ven FLYVER, som desværre ikke er hos os mere. Flyver opdagede geocachingens glæder og udfordringer i februar 2015 og skrev sin sidste log den 4. juni 2016. Få dage efter gik han bort.
Hans kæmpe entusiasme, energi og humør smittede af på alle os, som heldigvis lærte ham at kende.
Æret være hans minde.
FLYVERS MINDE er en serie med 9 cacher og en BONUS-cache. For at finde BONUS-cachen skal man løse nogle opgaver og notere oplysninger fra de øvrige cacher i serien.
(husk skriveredskaber og papir).

Cacherne er placeret i Klosterheden Plantage (Kronhede Plantage) i den østlige del af det område hvor tyskerne placerede ”Flugstützpunkt Rom” under 2. Verdenskrig (se kortudsnit og beskrivelserne længere nede).

(EN) This series has been designated as a memorial to our good Geocaching-friend FLYVER, who unfortunately is not with us anymore. FLYVER discovered the geocaching joys and challenges in February 2015 and wrote his last log 4 June 2016. A few days later, he passed away.
His enormous enthusiasm, energy and humor rubbed off on all of us who luckily know him.
We honor his memory.
FLYVERS MEMORIAL is a series of 9 caches and a BONUS-cache. To find BONUS cache you must solve some questions and take notes from the other caches in the series.
(remember pens and paper).
The caches are located in Klosterheden Plantation (Kronhede Plantation) in the eastern part of the area where the Germans placed "Flugstützpunkt Rome" during World War II (see map and descriptions below).

(DK) Kortudsnittet herunder viser området hvor Flugstützpunkt Rom var placeret:

(EN) Map section below show where the “Flugstützpunkt Rom” was located:

(DK) Kort tid efter tyskernes besættelse af Danmark i april 1940, begyndte de opførelsen af en flyveplads ved landsbyen Rom syd for Lemvig. Flyvepladsen blev til at starte med anlagt feltmæssigt. Det betød at landingsbanerne blev anlagt med græs og kun rullebanerne blev støbt i beton. Hangarer til de parkerede fly blev lavet som jordvolde med udspændt camouflagenet som tag og der blev opført barakker til mandskabet.
Den 7. april 1941 kastede et engelsk bombefly 4 bomber over flyvepladsen, uden dog at anrette nogen skade.
I starten af februar 1942 forlod de to krigsskibe, Admiral von Scheer og Prinz Eugen deres base i Wilhelmshaven for at sejle til Norge. Undervejs blev de beskyttet af 30 Bf-110 Messerschmitt jagerfly, der brugte flyvepladsen i Rom som deres base.
I 1943 blev flyvepladsen udbygget med støbning af beton bunkers til forskellige funktioner bl.a. underbringelse (R501, R502 og R622), nærforsvar, ammunition (R607), kommando (R608) og hospital (R118).
Byggeriet på flyvepladsen fortsatte frem til foråret 1945 hvor de sidste flyvemaskiner overførtes til flyvepladsen i Grove og landingsbanerne efterfølgende blev gjort ubrugelige.

(EN) Shortly after the German occupation of Denmark in April 1940, they began to construct an airfield near the village of Rom, south of Lemvig. The airfield was initially equipped with grass runways, only the taxiways being of concrete. Aircraft was parked in earth pens, which had camouflage nets stretched over them and barracks for the personnel were erected nearby.
On 7 April 1941, a British bomber dropped 4 bombs on the airfield, without causing any damage.
In early February 1942 two warships, Admiral von Scheer and Prinz Eugen, left their base in Wilhelmshaven to sail to Norway. During their journey, 30 Bf-110 Messerschmitt fighters based at Rom. protected them.
In 1943, the airfield was expanded with the casting of concrete bunkers for various functions, including: barracks and lodging (R501, R502 and R622); local defense; ammunition (R607); command (R608); and a hospital (R118). Expansion of the airfield continued until the spring of 1945, when the last aircraft was relocated to the airfield in Grove and the runways were subsequently destroyed to prevent Allies to use them.
