After a walk on the beach area, came across this monument. There is a special plaque to US airmen who were lost at sea after being shot down in 1950. The plaque was placed there in 2000 marks 50 years of remembrance .

Nice statue on the beautiful beach of Liepaja. It is not far from the city center, probably around 20-30 minutes walk.
