General

After World War II, Itzehoe was a civil aerodrome. In the late 1950s, German Army aviation moved into the Hungriger Wolf ("Hungry Wolf"). For a long time, the field only had a grass runway. In the early 1980s, an asphalt runway was constructed. In 2003, the tenant Heeresfliegerregiment 6 (Army Flying Regiment 6) has been disbanded and the Bundeswehr (German Forces) withdrew from the garrison. Since then, the field is used by general aviation.
