Neubiberg airfield was opened in 1933 and later expanded into a Luftwaffe air base. After World War II, the field was first used by the US Air Force, which was stationed here until 1957 with various combat and transport aircraft. From 1958 to 1971, Neubiberg was base of the Air Transport Wing 61 (Lufttransportgeschwader 61, LTG 61) of the German Air Force. The Air Force continued the airfield until the early 1990s. After that, it served for general aviation until Neubiberg was finally closed in 1997.
