Runway: 03/21 1260m X 35m Asphalt.

Boucau-Tarnos airfield was a private airfield 650 kilometers southwest of Paris. (ICAO: LF0422)

Nothing about the origins was found during our historical research, not even a little history of this aerodrome. Theonly thing we found is that it was a private aerodrome

The first trace of this aerodrome dates from 1965 photography where an asphalt runway of about 300m is visible on the beach (ign.gouv.fr).

 

In this 1974 aerial photo the runway appeared to have been lengthened to about 600m and a turn-around snowshoe was added to the north of the runway (ign.gouv.fr).

 

1989 - The runway was visibly lengthened to 1260m (ign.gouv.fr).

 

2002 - The runway seems abandoned (ign.gouv.fr).

Today, the runway is still visible but no longer used.
