Overview of Melun Villaroche, with two perpendicular runways. Villaroche Airport was built prior to World War II, and seized by the Germans in June 1940. It was liberated by Allied ground forces 1 September 1944 during the Northern France Campaign. This aerodrome is best known for the numerous tests of aircraft prototypes that have occurred until the early 1980s, especially those of several military aircraft such as the Dassault Mystery; Mirage, and VTOL designs. It was also a test center for SNECMA.
