Belfort Chaux aerodrome (ICAO code: LFGG) is an aerodrome open to public air traffic (CAP), located in the municipalities of Sermamagny and Chaux, 7 km north of Belfort in the Territoire de Belfort (Burgundy region – Franche-Comté, France). It is used for the practice of leisure and tourism activities (light aviation, hot air balloons and model aircraft).
The airfield was established during the First World War. It hosted 21 squadrons successively or sometimes simultaneously. One of them, the MS 49 squadron, will count among its pilots Adolphe Pégoud, who distinguished himself before the start of the conflict by the execution of the first “loop” (aerobatic figure known under the name looping). It was near this aerodrome that he lost his life in aerial combat. In fact, on August 31, 1915, it received an enemy bullet in the heart while it was flying over Petit-Croix (Territoire de Belfort).
