    History of this Location

    Originally opened as Molenheide, this is the oldest airfield in the Netherlands. During World War II, it was occupied as a Luftwaffe fighter base. After the war it became a training base but reverted to its fighter role in 1972. In 1995, the Tactische Helikopter Groep (Tactical Helicopter Group) took over the base. It is also the home of the Koninklijke Luchtmacht Historische Vlucht (RNLAF Historic Flight).
