Nörvenich Air Base (Fliegerhorst Nörvenich) is a German Air Force air base in Germany (ICAO: ETNN)
It is the home of Taktisches Luftwaffengeschwader 31 "Boelcke".
The squadron flies the Eurofighter Typhoon.
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.
