The depth of interest in the civilian airport and the former air base.

I was stationed at Rhein-Main Air Base twice from 1983 - 1985 and 1987 - 1989. Most of it is gone now, judging by the empty land. The ramp is largely intact. Hard to believe most of the base is now gone!

Its sad to see Rhein Main Air Base gone. I was assigned to R/M AB during the Berlin Airlift and it ws the best duty I ever had in my USAF Career. I recommend anyone interested to view the movie The Big Lift (1950 Montgomery Cliff) to see R/M AB in all its glory. RM AB will always have a place in the history of Frankfurt, Germany.
