Wittmund Air Base in Northern Germany is home
of the famous Taktisches Lufftwaffengeschwader 71 “Richthofen”
Squadron. Since the retirement of the F-4 Phantoms in 2013, the Squadron
successfully transitioned to the Eurofighter. The base also houses a detachment
of Discovery Air Defence, a company specialized in providing military training
services. They operate a fleet of seven A-4N Skyhawks contracted to the
German Air Force, Army and Navy.
