Rheine Air Base (German: "Heeresflugplatz Rheine") is located near the village of Bentlage, 2 km Northwest of the city of Rheine, Lower Saxony, Germany.
In 1939 works to build an air base for the Luftwaffe began. These works were completed in 1940. During World War II extensive use was made of the air base, particularly by night and day fighter squadrons. After the war the air base was abandoned.
