    Sure thing. But he left just before the siege of the city and ended up in Rome, only to be deported, most likely, back to Romania in November of 1945...

    There is another airfield in Baltiysk, Kaliningrad which housed Luftwaffe planes called Pillau-Neutif. I just visited it the other day. You can find more info on it here: Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields: Russia - Kaliningrad

    Also, Koenigsberg/Kaliningrad was home to a bigwig in the Luftwaffe and Luftwaffe pilots were often sent to Koenigsberg for rest and relaxation. My wife's family lives in Kalingrad and I've been visiting here for the past two weeks and have been steeped in some interesting history about the Luftwaffe here.
