History of the Air Base Oldenburg

Fighter Bomber Wing 43 was decommissioned September 30, 1993, the Air Base operating licence was revoked in 1994.

Flying activities originated at the Rennplatz , then a racetrack, nowadays a housing area. A daring aviator took up his aircraft, called Grade, to 400 metres and managed to land savely, a feat no-one had expected.

Planning for a civil airport in Oldenburg was stopped by World War I, but in the summer of 1924 a flying-show at the Rennplatz again led to renewed aviation activities in Oldenburg…
