The German airfield of Uitkerke was constructed in early 1917 and was situated along the "Brugse Baan" at the Meiboom part of

Uitkerke. Units stationed here (Kustabteilung III and IV and Schutzabteilung I and II) were mostly occupied with reconnaissance of

the coastal line. On 6 October 1918 the last units left Uitkerke airfield. The two white buildings visible at each along the main road

are bunkers still in existence today.
