Boehmer Army Airfield, Hoppstädten-Weiersbach, 1995
Aerial view of Hoppstädten Army Airfield (also known as Boehmer AAF). Not much is known about the history of this airfield to date except that it housed flying units from 1956 till 1973. "Happy Valley," as it was called, was infamous for its bad weather. Later it was used as a maintenance facility of some kind and weather diversion airfield for Baumholder. It was returned to the German government during the early nineties. Today it is used as a civilian airfield.
