LOCATION: Wiesbaden is a 25 minute car ride from the Frankfurt airport, and sits right next to the historical city of Mainz. Wackernheim is a twenty minute ride to Wiesbaden, as is Dexheim. Both communities are serviced by a shuttle bus during the work week. Please see the section on Direction for specific driving instructions.

HISTORY: The area that is presently Wiesbaden Army Airfield has a long history of festival grounds. A early as 1184 a national festival was held on the grounds and a German emperor Friedrich I, knighted his sons there.

During the Berlin Airlift of 1949, airmen from Wiesbaden distinguished themselves in support of "Operation Vittles". C52's and C84 "Flying Boxcars" of the 60th Troop Carrier Group flew missions daily from Wiesbaden to Tempelhof Airport in the beleaguered city of Berlin. During one day's operations more than 80 tons of food and supplies were airlifted from Wiesbaden Air Base. The streets on Wiesbaden Army Airfield are named after servicemen that gave their lives during the Berlin Airlift.

In 1976 USAFE and all USAF flying units moved to Ramstein and were replaced at Wiesbaden Air Base by an U.S. Army Mechanized Infantry Brigade. During this period flying activities at Wiesbaden were greatly reduced. In 1983 the unit was de-activated and the decision made to use the Air Base for its primary purpose?that of an aviation facility. Although it retained the name Wiesbaden Air Base, at that time Wiesbaden AAF became the primary airfield of the U.S. Army V Corps.

Wiesbaden now serves as the home station of the US Army Garrison Wiesbaden, 1st Armored Division Headquarters, 3d COSCOM, 205th Military Intelligence Brigade, and C Company of the 5th Battalion, 58th Aviation Regiment. In 1998 the Air Base was officially renamed Wiesbaden Army Airfield.
