    History of this Location

    Aircraft, balloons and parchuting has been carried out  on the meadows here since around 1912, but it wasn't until Jun 1927 that an airfield formally opened as part of the Lufthansa domestic network. Between 1935 and 1937, hangars and a barracks were added. The airfield was busy during WWII as an airborne assault, training and fighter base. Shortly after the war, Hildeshiem was in the British occupied sector of Germany and the Flughafen Kaserne barracks were renamed Tofrek barracks. It has been a base for the British Army including 3 PARA, the Royal Artillery and since 1984, the Royal Tank Regiment.
