1st Squadron "Stingers"

1 day 7 hours ago

Dear friends,

After 2 years working on our Facebook page and nearly 4000 of you following us, it is time for me to leave that beautiful Squadron for a new posting, the head full of amazing experiences and adventures (like that F-16 Backseat Flight over UK, in 2016). I have been a Stinger for about 12 years and believe me, yeah, those days were the best of my life!

I also would like to salute and thank all the friends and followers I met during airshows or during the numerous events organized for our Centenary, for their enthousiasm and friendship.

It is time for me to give the lead to Christian, who will make this page go even better... and higher, together with you all!

A la Première!!!

Dear followers,

We are proud to present you the "1 SQN 100 years in 100 stories", the successfully crowdfunded book that celebrates the Stingers' centennial!

What is it about? Not only it brilliantly narrates the story of the squadron from 1913 to these days, but it does it with gorgeous pictures and adds a touch of humour and fun fact on each story!

Interested? Contact us on Facebook or 1sqnstingers@gmail.com !
