This Airbase was the largest underground military base and airport in all of the former Yugoslavia. The property is located on the current border of Bosnia and Croatia. The complex was built in 1948 - It was codenamed 505. The construction was completed 20 years later. The purpose of the facility was to establish, integrate and coordinate the nationwide early warning network of the Socialist Federated Republic of Yugoslavia, similar to NORAD (North American Air Defense Command). There were semicircular concrete shields, spaced ten meters apart to reduce the impact of the attack on the object. The complex had an underground water source, power generators, crew quarters and other strategic military facilities. Aircraft was used in 1991 during the Yugoslav War. Yugoslav People's Army During the withdrawal, it destroyed the runway by detonating explosive charges. In order to prevent any further use of the complex, Serbian troops detonated 56 tons of explosives. During exploration, a possible meeting of the police, the border guards of Croatia and the army should be reconsidered. The tunnels are buried, due to the underground connection with Bosnia, which would constitute a "wild" border crossing. Link to my fanpage: https://www.facebook.com/urbexdestruction/ [/url]
Long time since I've had an explore with Frizman, and he'd just got his first Canon DSLR. Newton had been on the list for a long time, it was a good place for him to try it out. I thought everything had gone from here, and that I had long missed the boat, so was quite pleased to find there were still a few buildings around to explore. Some rooms were a bit a stripped and empty, but buildings like the dining hall and bar were rewarding. Apart from the beginning of the day, we didn't see security again, so had an enjoyable few hours mooch. Thanks to Mr Sam for information on this place. Explore with Frizman, on a bright winter's day. RAF Newton is a disused airfield immediately to the south of Main Street. It opened in July 1940 and closed in 2000. The hangars and other buildings are now used by a number of businesses within the Newton Commercial Centre. thanks for looking
