The air base was founded as a diversion airfield in 1954 with two parallel runways (06L/24R and 06R/24L) and never served as an active base for aircraft, seeing only incidental usage from the aerial photo reconnaissance unit from nearby Volkel Air Base, even though the base was expanded in 1973 for possible NATO use. In 1993 it was closed as an operational airfield and is now used a by the RNAF's guided missile devision (Groep Geleide Wapens, or GGW). One runway remains however, though not actively used. It is used by gliders however and still incidentally by light aircraft as well. Military aerial exercises also take place in its airspace.
