World War II

During World War II, Ghisonaccia Airfield was a military airfield used by the United States Army Air Forces. It was an all-weather temporary field built in late 1943 by the XII Engineer Command using Marsden Matting for runways and parking areas, as well as for dispersal sites. In addition, tents were used for billeting and also for support facilities; an access road was built to the existing road infrastructure; a dump for supplies, ammunition, and gasoline drums, along with a drinkable water and minimal electrical grid for communications and station lighting. It was turned over to the Twelfth Air Force for operational combat use. Known units assigned to the airfield were:

After the war ended, the airfield was turned over to local authorities. Today the military airfield has been developed into a small, regional airport used by small aircraft.
