<< Back to Bricquebec-en-Cotentin


In the middle of a grassy area on the northern side of the D902.

A weathered replica of a plane with a broken right wing balanced on a thin stone pillar supported by a stone base set in a gravel plot in the middle of a grassy area marked off by bushes. There are two white information panels nearby describing the two crashes. A black plaque with gold lettering commemorates the two US aircrew that died in the area.
