Göllheim Airfield is a former military airfield, located 4.2 km west-southwest of Göllheim in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.

HistoryEdit

The airfield's origins are undetermined. Göllheim was captured by the United States Army in March 1945 as part of the Western Allied invasion of Germany. The airfield was repaired by IX Engineering Command, Ninth Air Force into an Army Air Forces advanced Landing Ground, designated Y-66. Air Force units used the airfield as a casualty evacuation and combat resupply airfield by the IX Air Service Command. After the German Capitulation on 8 May, it was abandoned.
