Show sight on map

The Silkebuche is a tree natural monument on the edge of the Schorfheide near Groß Schönebeck, east of the Pinnow lakes. The age of the European beech was estimated at 250 to 300 years. The tree broke apart almost in the middle in the summer of 2021, one half fell over first, and the other half a month later. The fallen tree is to remain according to information from the Groß Schönebeck forester's office. In May 2022, at the instigation of the Landeswaldoberförsterei, an information board about the beech tree was erected. A circular hiking trail leads around the site. The tree was named after a forester's wife.

Production started in 1969 and reached large numbers with over 5,000 aircraft built, making it the most produced variable-sweep wing aircraft in history. Today the MiG-23 remains in limited service with some export customers.
