BORDEAUX MERIGNAC AIRPORT HISTORY

An airfield was first established in Bordeaux Merignac in 1917, and the French Air Force also used the site as a training location.

During the Second World War, the airport was taken over by German control, and was used as a base for maritime reconnaissance. The creation of its wide paved runway in 1938 allowed heavily loaded German aircraft to depart from the runway. The base was then attacked by the US Air Force and the RAF in 1943.

In 1951 Bordeaux Merignac airport was taken over by NATO for use by the US Air Force, and the building of a modern air base began. The US military retained a presence at the airport until 1961, when control was handed back to France.
