A small grassy space overlooking railroad tracks.
North-east of Soissons, get off the N2 onto Rue de Laon and turn right on Rue du Capitain Peal, then get on Rue des Pieds-Ferres.
Returning from a mission with nothing more than close-quarter weapons, Captain Peal saw a German weapon train below him and decided to dive in order to attack it. Brought down by the Germans, his P-47 crashed 30 meters from here.
