General

Tempelhof was opend in the 1920s as a civil airport, which was then extended several times. At the end of the Second World War in 1945, the field was first occupied by Soviet troops, who handed it over to US troops shortly afterwards. During the Berlin Airlift in 1948/49, Tempelhof was the most important airfield for supplying the city's western sectors by air. In the following years, intensive civil air traffic developed here until it was moved to the Tegel airport in 1974. The airfield thus became a pure US military airfield again. With the reunification in 1990 and the withdrawal of the US units, Tempelhof Airport was again used for civilian purposes until it was closed on 30 October 2008. On 24 November 2008 the last aircraft left the airport, which had already been officialy closed. The airfield building was now used for events and the area has been converted to a recreational park.

Overview

Map of Berlin Tempelhof Airfield, Germany, from 1931
Map from 1931 - The aircraft symbol is the position of the wind direction indicator. The red solid circle on the right slightly above stands for the radio station, the two jagged arrows symbolize two radio masts. To the right is the signal mast. Below the lettering "Berlin" is the location of the smoking stove. The two black suns are aviation fires. The red numbers represent the obstacle height in meters above the runway including lightning rods and flagpoles. Numbers in brackets are the height without lightning rod and flagpoles. The obstacle to the east with a height of 63 m is the Genezarethkirche church at Herrfurthplatz, which is mentioned below. It is secured with an obstacle fire.

    During World War II

    From the mid-1930s onwards, the airport was considerably expanded and a new monumental airport building was erected. However, the building was not put into operation until the beginning of the war. During the Second World War, an aircraft factory was operated there.

    Former Tempelhof airfield on a US map
    Former Tempelhof airfield on a US map - Although the map is from 1951, the state of expansion shown here is likely to be in the early 1940s. The old airfield is in the center, surrounded by the oval of the new airport. The arched new building, which is over one kilometer long, delimits the oval in the upper left corner. The area with the sports facilities on the eastern side was later used for an expansion. (AMS M841 GSGS 4414, Courtesy Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University /BYU/)
