Lemmes Aerodrome, was a temporary World War I airfield in France. It was located 0.6 miles (0.97 km) West-Northwest of the commune of Lemmes, in the Meuse department in Lorraine in north-eastern France.
The airfield was used briefly by the United States 186th Aero Squadron in November 1918 after the Armistice with Germany. It was likely a German facility during the war which served the Americans while waiting for permission to enter the Rhineland on 1 December with the Third Army of Occupation. On 6 December the Squadron moved out to Trier Airdrome and the subsequent history of Lemmes Aerodrome is unknown.
Eventually, the airfield was returned to agricultural use. Today it is a series of cultivated fields located northwest of Lemmes. The airfield was located to the west of the Départmental 204 (D204), with no indications of its wartime use.
