The 103rd Aero Squadron would like to officially welcome our two newest recruits.
 
US103_Baer is an excellent pilot and teammate formerly known as PauLMF

Named after Paul Frank Baer a native of Indiana who activated with the 103rd on February 18th 1918 and was the leading ace in the USAS at the time of his capture on May 22nd with 9 victories all on SPAD VIIs.
 
 
US103_Tobin is joining us after a long time away from game.

Edgar G. Tobin a native of Texas joined the 103rd on April 3rd 1918 and stayed with the squadron until the end of the war. He accumulated six victories flying in the red nosed first flight. He flew at least three different SPAD XIIIs, two of the numbered 20 and 3.
 
I'll get proper write ups and dossiers added to the 103rd website in the next few days.
 
Welcome Gentlemen! We look forward to hunting the hun with you both!
 
S!
Hunter

Welcome to the US 103rd gentlemen... :) 

 

I am happy that you are both fighter pilots as Hunter will have less to worry about when I stay with my two-seater bombers...

 

And maybe I'll get some better aerial support as many times I have to fly my missions alone...

Thanks Hunter and everyone.
I enjoy flying with the US103 guys and it was time to get myself more organised tactically and learn from some excellent pilots.

@Cannon, happy to do some 2-seater work/protection with you and Parsons. That's what wins maps and it provides excellent bait :)

Am traveling this week but look forward to seeing you all in the skies next week.

"Gathering his pilots around him on arrival he gave a pep talk, saying that they were equipped with the finest machine of all time and had three battle-experienced flight commanders. He expected every one of them to fight like hell and that it must never be said that any of them ever failed to go to the aid of a comrade, regardless of the cost, and that no patrol was ever to be late in taking off."

100 years ago today the Lafayette Escadrille became the 103rd Aero Squadron USAS. The pilots transferred to the USAS and American ground crews took over for the French troops. Happy 100th!
