Base aérienne de Saint-Dizier

Bonsoir
Ayant vécu à Saint-Dizier bercé par le bruit des Mirage 2000 et Jaguar, je n'ai jamais trouvé d'informations concernant la présence de la Luftwaffe . La base avait été utilisée par une escadrille de reconnaissance ou de bombardement dans laquelle avait servi Saint-Exupéry.
Merci pour votre aide.

Bonsoir Alex,
Pour Saint Dizier:
Saint-Dizier (FR) (a.k.a. St. Dizier – Robinson) (48 38 15 N – 04 54 30 E) General: airfield in NE France 73 km NE of Troyes and 3.25 km WSW of Saint-Dizier. History: an old French military airfield, it was used relatively little until 1942. At the beginning of that year, the Luftwaffe began developing it and building paved runways, and by the second half of 1942 it became operational as a night fighter station, quite likely the most important and active one in France. Dimensions: approx. 1690 x 1325 meters (1850 x 1450 yards) and roughly rectangular in shape. After extentions in 1943, 1690 x 1510 meters (1850 x 1650 yards). Surface and Runways: dug up due to construction but used to be grass. Had 2 paved (concrete?) runways under construction on 4 Jul 43 – (1) approx. 1510 x 80 meters (1650 x 90 yards) aligned ESE/WNW with assembly hardstands at both ends; (2) no details – in the very early stages of construction in Jul 43. A perimeter road enclosed the landing area. Equipped with obstruction lighting, permanent runway illumination, a beam approach system and a visual Lorenz system. Fuel and Ammunition: refueling points on the E boundary and refueling loops at the SE and SW corners close to the dispersal areas there. Ammunition storage was probably in the dispersal areas but no evidence of bomb storage noted. Infrastructure: had 1 double hangar with a few sheds and huts in the Southwest dispersal, and 3 very small hangars at the NW corner, 2 of which had paved aprons. Station HQ, admin officesw, etc., were in a group of buildings at the NE corner. Barracks had been erected off the NW corner and a group of barrack huts were located 2.5 km off the S boundary near the village of Vaucourt. The nearest rail connection was in Saint-Dizier. The airfield was also supplied by barges that plied the Saint-Dizier Canal. Dispersal: the 3 dispersal areas – North, South and Southwest – had a total of 38 covered aircraft shelters plus 1 aircraft parking site. The Southwest dispersal was connected to the landing area by a special bridge over the Saint-Dizier Canal. Defenses: protected by just 4 light Flak positions in Jul 43. This was considerably increased when the heavy Allied bombings started in spring 1944. Satellites and Decoys: Orconte/I (48 39 05 N – 04 43 05 E), satellite or dispersal field 2 km N of Larzicourt and 13.5 km W of Saint-Dizier airfield. An airstrip measuring - 324 - Luftwaffe Airfields 1935-45 approx. 640 x 65 meters (700 x 70 yards) was in the early stage of construction on 25 Jun 44. Orconte/II (48 39 30 N – 04 44 35 E), satellite or dispersal field 1.25 km SE of the village of Orconte and 11.5 km WNW of Saint-Dizier airfield. An airstrip measuring approx. 1550 x 230 meters (1700 x 250 yards) was in the early stage of construction on 6 Jul 44. Remarks: 20 Apr 41: employed 157 non-German workers; station not yet operational. 16 Sep 43: work was continuing on the building of a NE/SW runway. 4 Oct 43: bombed by 38 B-17 Fortresses as a target of last resort. 18 Nov 43: runway construction and landing area leveling substantially completed. The second runway measured 1510 x 65 meters (1650 x 70 yards) and was aligned NE/SW. 16 Mar 44: low-level attack by VIII Fighter Command P-47s – claimed 1 x Ju 88 and 1 x Bf 110 destroyed. 24 Mar 44: bombed by 147 B-24 Liberators as a secondary target – 4 night fighters from NJG 1 destroyed. 24 Apr 44: low-level attack by VIII Fighter Command P-47s – claimed 3 x Bf 109s and 4 x unidentified aircraft destroyed, plus 1 x Bf 109 damaged. 9 May 44: bombed by 75 B-17s. 17 Jul 44: bombed by 11 B-24 Liberators as a target of opportunity. Postattack photos showed work underway to extend the ESE/WNW runway to approx. 1830 meters (2000 yards). A Southwest (remote) dispersal with 8 aircraft shelters was being built 2 km off the SW corner with a bridge over the Saint-Dizier Canal and a taxiway to connect it to the main landing area. 2 Aug 44: bombed by 12 B-24s as a target of opportunity. 18-19 Aug 44: hit on two consecutive days by 116 B-17s and an unknown number of medium bombers and P-51 strafers – approx. 5 x Ju 88/Bf 109 Mistel combinations (10 aircraft in all) from Einsatzstaffel KG 101 destroyed or badly damaged on the ground. Operational Units: II./NJG 4 (Sep 42 – Mar 44); II./JG 27 (Sep-Nov 43); II./NJG 1 (Mar-May 44); I./NJG 5 (May-Aug 44); I./JG 301 (Jun 44). School Units: Einsatzstaffel/KG 101 (Jun – Jul 44). Station Commands: Fl.H.Kdtr. E 10/VIII (Jul 40 – Aug 43); Fl.H.Kdtr. E 24/XI (Dec 40); Fl.H.Kdtr. A 233/XII (Sep 43 –Mar 44); Fl.H.Kdtr. E(v) 212/XII (Apr-Aug 44). Station Units (on various dates – not complete): Nachtjagdraumführer 9 (Jul 42 – Mar 44); Koflug Saint-Dizier (Jul 40 – Mar 41); Koflug 3/XIII (Apr 41 – Dec 42); elements of schw.Flak-Abt. 557 (Aug 44); Stab IV.
