Royal Air Force Station Gütersloh, more commonly known as RAF Gütersloh, was a Royal Air Force Germany military airfield, the nearest Royal Air Force airfield to the East/West German border, in the vicinity of the town of Gütersloh. It was constructed by the Germans prior to World War II. The station was captured by the Americans in April 1945 and was handed over to the RAF in June 1945 as Headquarters No. 2 Group RAF.
Its early history is largely undetermined. It is known that construction began in 1935, and the station was active in 1944–45 with Ju-88 Nightfighters of 5./NJG 2 as part of the Defense of the Reich defensive aerial campaign fought by the Luftwaffe.
