Valence-Chabeuil Airport

Valence-Chabeuil Airport

Valence-Chabeuil Airport (IATA: VAF, ICAO: LFLU). is an airport in France, located about 5 miles east of Valence (Departement de la Drome, Rhone-Alpes); approximately 300 miles south-southeast of Paris.

The airport was a pre-World War II French Air Force (Armée de l'Air) airfield. After the Battle of France, it was seized by Nazi Germany in November 1942. It was later used by the Luftwaffe, and after the Allied Invasion of southern France in August 1944, by the United States Army Air Force Twelfth Air Force.

Used by the French Air Force base after the war, it was closed and today the airport is used for general aviation, with no commercial airline service. It is still occasionally used by military aircraft.
