A look at the old military facility known as the Northeast Airfield that once stood where the civilian Krasnostav Airstrip now resides.
It may feel like a lifetime ago at this point, but once upon a time the place we now call the Krasnostav Airstrip was known as the “Northeast Airfield,” or NEAF for short. Today, that place is a quaint civilian airfield with a hangar and terminal appropriate for that role, but it used to be something far different.
The image above is one of the clearest remaining that shows us what it was like to descend upon this location early in the timeline of DayZ Standalone. It may have been a legacy site from the days of the Mod, but it served as an important hub of (mostly hostile) activity that veteran players remember fondly.
Let’s take a journey through time, back to the beginning of the Standalone when the North was empty and every new life on the eastern coast was a mad scramble for the airfield.
