Air field Asnelles(-sur-Mer) was an Emergency Landing Strip near Gold Beach in Normandy, France.
The airfield was completed on 7 June 1944. It served as a safe haven for aircraft in trouble, unable to reach another airfield. The strip only measured 600m in length, because it was only intended for landings, and not for takeoffs. The landing strip was completed on D-Day, and remained in use for a while.

It is not known if it was actually used.
