     History
    Built in 1921 as a public airport this site was taken over by the Nazis in the mid of the 30' and was used as an "Luftwaffe" airfield and a training school for pilots.

    In 1945 the site was confiscated by the US Army and was changed to a army base (using most of the nazi era buildings). It was closed in the early 90's.

    More pictures - esspecially from the other buildings - will follow soon.
