United States First Army Air Service
The airfield was built during the late summer of 1918 as a main operating base for the United States First Army Air Service, I Corps Observation Group. It was established to support the Meuse-Argonne Offensivem with Corps (tactical) reconnaissance and battlefield observation support. By the end of September, the group moved three observation squadrons to the airfield. During the Argonne operation the Salmson 2A2s of the group were in much demand, with aerial photography, observer notes and artillery adjustments as the front moved to the north and west. The group moved to Julvecourt Aerodrome on 5 November in order to operate closer to the front lines.
After the armistice, the airfield was turned over to the French Air Service and it was returned to agricultural use. Today it is a series of cultivated fields located west of Remicourt . The airfield was located to the north of the Départmental 54 (D54), with no indications of its wartime use.
