An airfield was built and used by the French Air Service at "Rembercourt" in early 1916, then again in August 1918, before it was transferred to American Air Service early September 1918. From 1 September 1918, it became the home of the 1st Pursuit Group until the end of war, especially during both the St. Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne Offensives, with five squadrons: 27th, 94th, 95th, 147th and 185th Aero Squadrons. In addition, it was a repair depot for both aircraft and vehicles, being the home of the 4th Air Park and Flight "C", 648th Aero Squadron, along with various aircraft hangars, support buildings and quarters for personnel.
By the end of 1918, the Americans left and the airfield was abandoned and returned to agricultural use. Today it is a series of cultivated fields located on the south side of the Départmental 902 (D902), northwest of Erize-la-Petite, with no indications of its wartime use. A large electrical windmill is now erected on the site.
