Rhein-Main Air Base is located near Frankfurt, Germany. The 469th Air Base Group is Rhein-Main's host unit, supporting 30 associate units and organizations and more than 3,000 military, civilian, contractor and family members. Its mission is to maintain an infrastructure ready for major airlift contingencies and to provide quality base operating support.
U.S. Air Force and German authorities signed an official agreement Dec. 23, 1999, to close and return the base to Germany by Dec. 31, 2005. During that ceremony, the Luftbruecke (air bridge) Memorial, pictured above, was also transferred to the Frankfurt Airport Company. The memorial highlights Rhein-Main's key role in the Berlin Airlift and stands as a symbol of the base's history as a strategically located airlift facility.
