Boistrancourt Estate

This picture is probably one of the finest showing the three main areas of estate:

  1. The Chateau (lower left).  Notice the craters from bombing in the front lawn! There is great controversy regarding whether a night raid on the field was conducted or not.  It stands to reason that the one of the most effective Central units of the war would be targeted by the enemy as they drew near! 

  2. The Beet Factory (upper).  We don't know much about this aspect of the location but it appears that it may have remained in production during much of the war.

  3. The airfield itself (upper right).  Notice you can see the row of various hangar types that Berr was experimenting with as well as the row of burms in front intended to protect personnel and machines from a careless pilot landing on the field!
