Hahn Air Base was a frontline NATO facility in Germany for
over 40 years during the Cold War. It is located 10 km (6.25
miles) from the town ofKirchberg and 20 km (12.5 miles) from
the town of Simmernin the Rhein-Hunsrück district of Rhineland-Palatinate to the west of central Germany.

It was the home of the United States Air Force 50th Fighter Wing (in various designations) for most of those years as part
of the United States Air Forces in Europe (USAFE). It was one
of several USAFE bases in Germany  (Zweibrucken Air Base, Ramstein, Sembach, Bitburg, Spangdahlem, and Rhein-Main)
all within 100 km (62.5 miles) of each other. Beyond their location
in the heart of US troop concentrations, these air bases were
well situated to reach all locations within Europe and the Mediterranean region.
