On 16 April 2015, the 1st Fighter Association finalized the donation of a WWII Photo Collection to the 94th Fighter Squadron, one of the 1st Fighter Wing's F-22 combat squadrons. The collection of photos belonged to Jim Bertoglio, the 94th Fighter Squadron photographer in 1944 and 1945.
Bertoglio's photos chronicle the life of the squadron as it operated throughout Italy in the later years of World War II. Capturing everything from aerial photos and maintenance work, to morale and welfare of the Airmen, the photos serve as a unique snapshot into wartime life and the history of airpower. The 1st Fighter Wing Commander, Colonel Kevin A. Huyck, and the Vice Commander, Colonel Jonathan M. Letsinger, accepted the collection on behalf of the deployed 94th Fighter Squadron. The "SPADS" intend to make sure this important piece of squadron history is appreciated and utilized to display their proud heritage
1st Fighter Association F-15 Static Display Dedication was held on Feb 6 2015 Thanks to everyone who donated time and/or money to make this vision a success!!
