NDB approach in 1960. The field is still operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF). The airfield map at the bottom right shows the identification beacon, which is typical for UK airfields (here with the ident "JV") (Source: USAF/USN FLIP 1960)
In 1966, the air base is operated by the German Air Force. The beacon has disappeared and the tower has been moved to the southern side of the runway. Weser Control is now managing the approaches. (Source: USAF/USN FLIP 1966)
In 1968, the field does not only have a NDB and a TACAN. There is also a VOR "JER" at the airfield, which was rather unusual for German air bases. Shortly afterwards, the VOR has disappeared again. (Source: DoD FLIP 1968)
