Beuzeville-la-Bastille is a commune in the Manche department in the Basse-Normandie region in northwestern France.

World War II

After the liberation of the area by Allied Forces in early June 1944, engineers of the Ninth Air Force IX Engineering Command began construction of a combat Advanced Landing Ground to the south of the town. Declared operational on 15 June, the airfield was designated as "A-6", it was initially used by the 371st Fighter Group which flew P-47 Thunderbolts until mid-September when the unit moved into Central France. Along with the 371st, the 367th Fighter Group flew P-38 Lightnings from the airfield. It was used until mid-September when it was closed.[1][2]
