Avenue de la Croix des Gardes, next to a parking lot along the road. The monument is visible from the road. From downhill, in the center of Cannes, the monument is on the right, just after the last houses. From on high, take the boulevard Leader to the summit of the col de la Croix des Gardes, take the avenue Jean de Noailles, then at the intersection take a left on the avenue de la Croix des Gardes.
On 25 May 1944, the US Army Air Forces B-24 Liberator, serial number 41-29412, nicknamed "Strictly from Hunger" crashed. On the back of the monument is an inscription (probably) dedicated to the resistant group who tried to rescue the survivors from the Germans.
