Thun Airfield in the Bernese Oberland is considered to be one of the most beautiful airfields in Switzerland with its magnificent panorama of the Alps. It is located about 15 miles southeast of Bern, the capital of Switzerland, not far from Lake Thun on the northern edge of the Alps.
The site originally served as a military airfield but was decommissioned in 1955 and has since been used as a civilian airfield for light aircraft and gliders. The original military affiliation of the airfield is still visible today due to its direct location in the middle of the military area and has been faithfully recreated in the scenery by several details. The first aeronautical activities in Thun were mentioned in 1910.
Thun Airfield has two 800 by 30 meter (2600 by 100 feet) grass-runways in parallel with a 14-32 orientation. One is meant to be use for gliders, the other for piston aircraft.
