"Oberhausen Airfield" in the picture is the Austrian Aigen/Ennstal military airfield. The exact place of filming is the "Fiala-Fernbrugg" garrison, which is still intact and used by HS Geschwader 2 and FlAR2/3rd Bat. of the Austrian army. The gage where the bus breaks through the fence, has actually never been the maingate - just a small entrance for the personnel. The big rocky mountain in the background (while the take-off is seen from the back) is the Grimming mountains, about 40km east from the "Dachstein", or about 80 km east and 10km South from Werfen.
