Lippstadt Airfield is a former military airfield located in Germany, located in the northern part of Lippstadt ; approximately 222 miles west-southwest of Berlin.
Fliegerhorst Lippstadt was a pre-World War II Luftwaffe airfield, opening in 1936. Primarily a support airfield for most of the war, Anti-Aircraft FlaK units were assigned and in 1944 it became a night interceptor airfield against Royal Air Force bomber attacks on Germany. It was seized by Allied ground forces in early April 1945 during the Western Allied invasion of Germany, being used as a combat airfield by the USAAF until the end of the war. It was closed in July 1945.
