The German Air Force (German: Luftwaffe) is an independent air force in the German army. The term itself means the air force, which was already used for the country's air force during the Third Reich, but from the beginning of 1956 the FRG took over the name again, and in the spring of the same year the GDR chose another name for its own air force (LSK / LV), which can also be explained by ideological reasons. During the existence of the two states, he was featured in the Hungarian press as the West German Air Force.
