Bicqueley Aerodrome was a temporary World War I airfield in France. It was located 1.0 mile (1.6 km) East-Southease from the commune of Bicqueley, in the Meurthe-et-Moselle department in northeastern France.
The airfield was constructed by the 477th Aero Squadron (Construction) in late August 1918. It had eight French Bessonnenux aircraft hangars and two British RAF type hangars. The construction also erected eight wooden barracks and 7 other buildings for maintenance shops, headquarters and a small clinic.
Bicqueley was turned over to the First Army Air Service I Corps Observation Group in early September, being used by the 50th Aero Squadron (Observation), flying De Havilland DH-4s as reconnaissance airfield over the Toul-Verdun Sector. The squadron was at Bicqueley between 8–24 September.
The airfield was turned over to the French 211 Squadron in late September upon their demand for its use.
Eventually the land was returned to agricultural use by the local farmers. Today, what was Bicqueley Airdrome is a series of cultivated fields located about one and one-half miles east-southeast of Bicqueley, with no indications of its wartime use.
