The Hangelar airfield near St Augustin (NRW) is home of the GrenzSchutzGruppe 9 der Bundespolizei. (GSG9 counter terrorist unit).
GSG9 was established 1972 as Grenzschutzgruppe 9 of the Bundesgrenzschutz; a special border security command within the (then) W-German Ministry of the Interior.
As the former Bundesgrenzschutz does not exist anymore the unit is currently integrated in the Bundespolizei but its tasking remains the same.
