Meiringen in typical Swiss style is blessed with underground hangars carved into the rock below the Axalphorn mountain. Located to the south of the air base, the caverns are often used to house the deployed or based aircraft. Outside the cavern entrance there is a ramp area where the aircraft park, between the days sorties. Once the protecting barriers have been opened and the road barriers dropped, the aircraft will taxi out of this complex, passing between the buildings on the base itself, and out to the runway. Immediately after landing the procedure is reversed.
South side the taxiway from the cavern hangar crosses a public road.
