Harvey Barracks/Kitzingen Army Airfield is a former United States Army 1st Infantry Division facility in Germany, located about 3,5 km east-northeast of Kitzingen , about 390 km southwest of Berlin.
Formerly part of the United States Army Würzburg military community, it was a 1st ID garrison since 1996 and prior to that it was home to 3rd ID 2nd Brigade. Originally built in 1917, the installation served as a training school for German pilots in World War I. The German Luftwaffe used the base a generation later to train the pilots of dive bombers and pursuit planes during World War II. The Americans took control in April 1945 and used it as an air base until being turned over to the 1st ID in 1947.
