Nowadays known as the Airport Weeze, the aerodrome close to the Netherlands is used by Ryanair and several other low cost airlines. Approx 2.4 mil. passengers p.a. use the airport to many different holiday destinations in Europe, Asia and North Africa.
The Royal Air Force Station Laarbruch was completed in 1954. In the following years the RAF stationed bombers and interceptor planes alongside the ever combat-alert Canberras. In a case of war those could have very quickly dropped nuclear bombs on different targets in the Soviet territory. After the downfall of the Iron Curtain, RAF Laarbruch was mainly used for operations in the Gulf region and the Balkans. As a result of the imminent withdrawal of the RAF from Germany, a concept for the future of the airbase had to be worked out.
2003 - four years after handover to the German authorities - commercial traffic commenced.

Conclusion by simFlight.com: "Weeze is a great little airport with graphics that are among the best I have seen. With the infrastructure from the days when it was an RAF airfield mostly intact and beautifully rendered there is as much here for the military aircraft enthusiast as there is for the civilian pilot. With a very reasonable price point and great performance this would make a worthwhile addition to any pilot’s repertoire of airports."
