Although it is classified as a "joint use" facility, Grosseto Air Base is primarily an Italian Air Force (Aeronautica Militare) Base, home of the 4th Stormo, equipped with the Eurofighter Typhoon. However, the facility is used as a commercial airport by civilian charter flights and private aircraft.

History

During World War II the airfield was used by the United States Army Air Force Twelfth Air Force. The 86th Fighter Group flew P-47 Thunderbolts from the field between 17 September and 6 November 1944. Later, the 57th Fighter Group, used the airfield from 24 September 1944 to 29 April 1945, and later between 7 May and 15 July 1945, flying combat operations with P-40 Warhawks.

Facilities

The airport resides at an elevation of 15 feet (5 m) above mean sea level. It has two asphalt paved runways: 03L/21R measuring 2,994 by 45 metres (9,823 × 148 ft) and 03R/21L measuring 2,356 by 24 metres (7,730 × 79 ft).
