Andøya air base in change
Andøya air base has in conformity with the rest of the Norwegian defence forces, gone through large changes and is still going through an adaptation of its activity.

History

On a NATO meeting in lisboa in 1951, regarding the placement of the infrastructure program assets, it was solemnly uttered a request to build an air base on Andøya. The resolution was thereby placed on the agenda and continuously discussed by the military leadership, who meant that Andøya had a superior location, both from a strategic viewpoint as well as on flight basis. In the Harstad times, on the 6th of Februrary 1952, the chief of airforce, liutenant general Finn Lambrechts, stated that Andøya was a superior location for for an airport/air base With the support in this and similar statements, rumours had it that NATO and the Norwegian defence force was planning to build an air base on Andøya. In the middle of March the same year, the minister of defence, Nils Langhelle informed the press that it was decided that there would be an air base on Andøya. There were many similar options, as well as on the sourthern, central and northern part of the island. What probably became the conclusive factor for the choice of airbase location was the access to harbour facilities. At Andenes chief engineer Holst in the governmental harbour authoritites, caught sight of a possibility to expand the harbour and to develop Andenes into a large fishery harbour.
