The former Royal Air Force Station Brüggen, more commonly known as RAF Brüggen, (IATABGNICAOETUR)[1][2] in Germany was a major station of the Royal Air Force until 15 June 2001. It was situated next to the village of Elmpt, approximately 43 kilometres (27 mi) west of Düsseldorf near the Dutch-German border. The base was named after the village of Brüggen, the nearest rail depot. Construction began in mid-1952, which involved the clearing of dense forest and draining of marshland. The station became active in 1953 during the rapid expansion of NATO forces in Europe. In 2002 was handled over to the British Army and renamed Javelin Barracks
