Woensdrecht Air Base

About

Woensdrecht Air Base (IATA: WOE, ICAO: EHWO) is a military airport near the town of Woensdrecht, about 10 km south of the city of Bergen op Zoom in the the Netherlands. It is located near highway A58 and the border with Belgium.

The airport was founded in 1934 as a glider and training airfield for the Royal Dutch Air Force. During German occupation in the Second World War, the airfield was expanded. After the war, it was used once again by the Royal Dutch Air Force for training purposes. In 1983 it was decided that Woensdrecht would house 48 cruise missiles fitted with nuclear warheads for the 486 tactical missile wing from the United States Air Force. However, just after completion of the required facilities, the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty put a halt to these plans.

The airport currently has one runway, 07/25, which is 2,440 meters (8,005 feet) long. It is now mainly used by the Royal Dutch Air Force as a training and logistical base and normally does not house any combat units. It has two civilian users, Fokker Services and Boeing, a company providing maintenance for primarily but not exclusively Fokker aircraft, the Fokker 50, Fokker 60 and Fokker 70 also being in use by the Royal Dutch Air Force and government. Because of the presence of Fokker Services, a large number of Fokker aircraft is usually present at the airfield. Boeing is not present at the airbase yet. but in future students will learn how to work with boeing aircraft here. The Royal Dutch Air Force mainly operates the Pilatus PC-7 for training.
