 The Black Swan Memorial, Brittney, France

The Black Swan crashed in France on New Year's Eve 1943. The memorial contains two monuments that were erected and are maintained by Yves Carnot. The initial wooden monument was erected on the precise location of the crash site (Yves Carnot's grandfather's field). The granite monument is located approximately 200 yards from the crash site.
