492d Sqn - "The Gypsies"

We have performed several missions this week, totalling somewhere in the region of 30 hours across our airframes. From practising Close Air Support, learning new procedures such as a Rolling Break approach to Air to Air Refuelling, we have welcomed new Warthog pilots into our ranks and an ever swelling Squadron. Want to join the most active Euro Squadron? - Come and have a go, if you think you’re hard enough.
