The airfield was briefly used by the 1st Pursuit Group, Air Service, United States Army as a forward operating base in late June and early July, 1918. It likely consisted of a series of tents for personnel and headquarters, with four squadrons of airplanes parked on agricultural fields. The group moved to Touquin on 28 June from Gengault Aerodrome, near Toul and carried out offensive operations over the Aisne-Marne Sector. After about a week, the group moved to Saints Aerodrome and the fields of Touquin were abandoned. It was never again used during the war.
After the armistice, the airfield was returned to agricultural use. Today it is a series of cultivated fields located south of Pezarches. The airfield was located to the south of the Départmental 231 (D231), with no indications of its wartime use.
