Eschwege Airfield is a former military airfield located in Germany in the northwest part of Eschwege (Hessen); approximately 170 miles southwest of Berlin. Fliegerhorst Eschwege was used during World War II by the German Luftwaffe as a transport and support airfield. It was seized in early April 1945 by the United States Army and used as a Ninth Air Force combat airfield until the end of the war in Europe. It was closed in January 1946 and was used as a displaced persons camp until 1949. The airfield/camp was subsequently dismantled and the facility redeveloped into an industrial area.

dbo:abstract
  • Der Fliegerhorst Eschwege war eine im Zuge der Aufrüstung im Dritten Reich 1935/36 gebaute militärische Einrichtung der Luftwaffe der Wehrmacht bei der nordhessischen Stadt Eschwege. Das Areal wird heute als Gewerbegebiet genutzt. Es wird von Einheimischen noch immer „Flugplatz“ genannt. Die Anlage ist nicht zu verwechseln mit dem Flugplatz Stauffenbühl, der nach dem Krieg südlich von Eschwege für Segelflieger eingerichtet wurde. (de)
