It was built for the RAF Germany in 1952 and opened in August 1954. In 1958, the Jagdbombergeschwader 31 (Fighter-Bomber Wing 31; abbreviated as: JaBoG 31) based at Nörvenich, was the first German fighter-bomber wing to use the U.S.-built Republic F-84F Thunderstreak of the United States Air Force.
In January 1959, this squadron was the first German Air Force wing to be assigned to NATO.
