The Royal Air Force B-100 Goch Airfield
After the Normandy landings, (D-Day 1944), the Allies advanced towards Germany. To support the progress of the ground forces, the Royal Air Force, (RAF), had to keep up with them and control the airspace. To do this, the RAF needed airfields and runways. The first Royal Air Force airfield in Germany, 'B-100 Goch', was established in February/March of 1945, south of Weeze.
