18th Engineer Battalion, 1950s

This very grainy picture of Giessen Army Airfield was taken around 1956.
The field's short pierced steel planking (PSP) runway can be seen at the top of the picture.
The wooden hangar at Giessen reportedly was a leftover from the Luftwaffe
days at the then much larger airfield but does not look like typical Luftwaffe construction style.
