Wunstorf Air Base is a German Air Force military air base, located 6 km south-southwest of Neustadt am Rübenberge in Lower Saxony, Germany. Wunstorf Air Base is the home to Air Transport Wing 62 (Lufttransportgeschwader 62). It flies the C-160D Transall transport aircraft.
The airfield was originally opened in 1936 for the National Socialist Luftwaffe. During the Second World War, it was seized by the British Army on 7 April 1945, in a fierce battle by elements of the 5th Parachute Brigade, 6th Airborne Division. During the battle, in which the 13th Battalion was also engaged, the 7th (Light Infantry) Parachute Battalion lost 6 killed, and 21 wounded, most from the initial ambush of the four leading trucks of B Company. The airfield was captured with 19 ME 109s, 4 FW 190s, 2 JU 88s, 2 JU 52s and much other valuable equipment.
After the battle, the base was taken over by the Royal Air Force and designated as Advanced Landing Ground B-116 Wunstorf.
