Meiringen Air Base Command
Welcome to Air Base Command Meiringen at the
Meiringen-Unterbach Air Base
Officially, the Meiringen Air Base was first operational on 1 December 1941. Its opening coincided with the year 1941 of the Second World War, a time when things looked pretty grim for Switzerland's further existence. Where do we stand today? What events have since characterised the development of this air base? One thing is sure, the differences between then and today are huge. Many things have proved their worth und have the same value today as in the past, but much has had to be adapted to the present time. Take some time and find out more about Meiringen Air Base Command and about the missions that the air base has to fulfil with its staff of about 230.
