This page is dedicated to all the men of the 55th Fighter Group,
who gave their lives whilst serving their country and preserving
our way of life and freedom. We owe them all a huge debt of
gratitude. One of the better unit specific sites we've seen, you'll
find a unit history, pilot, crew and staff bios, pilot reports and
tons of period pictures.
"Both events were grand slam home runs, and the
outreach will continue."

Aviation Society Inc. (VASI). Pilots flying from Venice Municipal
Airport (VNC) in Florida used a local holiday parade and airport
birthday celebration to reach out to the nonflying public, a move
they believe helped engender good will for their airport despite
long-running battles over noise and safety issues.
