Leeuwarden opened as a civilian airfield in 1936. During WW2 the German Luftwaffe rebuilt the Air Base to a main night fighter base with three hardened runways. After the War the Dutch Air Force took over the base and transformed it to one of the main fighter bases, operating Spitfires, Meteors, Hunters, Starfighters and F-16. With two military target areas in the north sea there was much need for SAR cover. Decission was made to transfer the SAR flight flying Alouette III from Soesterberg to Leeuwarden in 1977. In 1994 the Alouette III was replaced by the Agusta Bell AB-412SP.
