Geocache Description:

Skibotn airport er en gammel feltflyplass

Skibotn airport is an old fieldairport

Denne ble brukt som landingsplass for forsvarets gamle OP-fly. Populært kalt Setermokråka. Dette var en Piper Army Club. De siste 40 årene er denne plassen blitt flittig brukt som en plass der man lærer å kjøre bil. Asfalten som var her er forvitret bort og erstattet av sand som det er nok av i Skibotnområdet. I tillegg er det en del villcamping på området med bobiler og campingvogner.

Laplassen som sletta her heter var også lagringsplass under 1 verdenskrig: Da lå det store mengder materiell her på sletta som skulle fraktes over Skibotndalen til Russland gjennom Finland. Blant annet passerte de 100 000 par støvler til Russiske soldater her. Norge var nøytral under 1 verdenskrig så denne transporten måtte holdes hemmelig. Men det ble mye arbeid og mye penger å tjene for de som hadde hest og kunne frakte godset over til finland



This was used as a landing place for military old OP-airplane. Popularly known Setermokråka. This was a Piper Army Club. Over the past 40 years, this space has been frequently used as a place where one learns to drive. The asphalt that was here is weathered away and replaced by sand as there are plenty of Skibotn area. In addition there are some wild camping on site with campers and caravans.

Laplassen as plain here named was also storage under! WWI: When there was large amounts of material here on the plain who were to be transported over Skibotndalen to Russia through Finland. Among other things, passed the 100,000 pairs of boots to the Russian soldiers here. Norway was neutral during World War 1 saw this transportation had to be kept secret. But there was a lot of work and a lot of money to be made for those who had horses and could carry the goods over to finland
