The memorial is located on Ramstein AB, Germany. It was built sometime after the tragedy in 1988 although no specific date could be found. It commemorates the Flugtag '88 air show disaster at Ramstein AB, Germany on 28 Aug 1988. Another memorial accessable to the general public listing the names of those killed is located just outside the base. See here.
