In August Colonel Gero von Fritschen who is the Commodore based at the Laage Air Base in Northern Germany was proud to announce a special anniversary. The magical mark of 40.000 flying hours was accomplished without any incidents. The commodore himself flew the 40,000th flying hour and was warmly welcomed by a small group of representatives to celebrate this special milestone.
Colonel von Fritschen thanked the entire team with a smile on his face and thanked the squadron for the outstanding performance for the last 14 years: "Thank you for your great professional work. Thank you for doing your best to keep the Eurofighter accident-free every day"
In March the squadron received a 20 year certificate for accident-free flying from the German General for flight safety.
