Target: GIESSEN GERMANY Airfield (74 aircraft) - (50.5976, 8.73406)

Flughafen Giessen opened as a civilian airport in July 1925 with flights Frankfurt/Main and Kassel. After the establishment of the National Socialist government in 1933, Giessen became a military base. The airfield was enlarged and more hangars were built in 1938. Other buildings were marked as commercial warehouses on building plans, masking their use as munitions storage. United States Army units moved into the area in April 1945 and designated the airfield as \"Advanced Landing Ground Y-84\". It was used briefly as a casualty evacuation and combat resupply airfield by the IX Air Service Command, Ninth Air Force. After the war it became the Giessen Army Depot, one of the largest depot facilities in Germany, with its own railway system and warehouses. In the 1950s Elvis Presley was stationed here. The facility was closed by the United States in 2008. wikipedia
