Comment: CFB Lahr (EDAN?)

Written by @32Aret on 2008-12-20 20:35:25 about Lahr Airport:

This airport used to be a Canadian Forces Base. The airport was used mostly for the frequent flights to and from Canada and for intra-Europe flights. In the 1980s and into the early 90s, the aircraft hardened shelters were used as an army garrison. One of the hard shelter areas was used by 444 Sqn, a tactical helicopter squadron flying the CH-136 Kiowa. I think that the ICAO code was EDAN at that time; I have no idea why it was changed. Even if the vocation of the airport changed drastically, I see no reason to change the ICAO code...
