The unit was named Waffenschule der Luftwaffe 30 (Air Force Weapons School 30) and flew Republic F-84F Thunderstreak fighters. At the end of October 1957 the unit began its transfer to Büchel Air Base, where on 1 July 1958 the School was officially reformed as Jagdbombergeschwader 33.


In May 1959 the wing transferred for a month-long training exercise to Bandirma air Base in Turkey.
