History

The airfield was opened on 26 October 1944 by the United States Army Air Forces IX Engineering Command as a grass liaison airfield for use by the Det 112, 112th Liaison Squadron and its light observation aircraft to support the numerous command and control organizations in Namur. Designated as Advanced Landing Ground "Y-47". In February 1945 the airfield received a 3,450 ft (1,050 m) all-weather Pierced Steel Planking surface to allow operations during the winter of 1944-1945.

American military units remained in Namur until November 1945 before returning to the United States and the airfield was turned over to Belgian authorities. The metal runway was eventually removed and today a modern grass airfield is used by light aircraft and sailplanes. As of 2018, there are intentions to create a hard runway.
