The 49th Fighter
Welcome to the official website of the
49th Fighter Squadron Association.
This site was created to celebrate the gallant warriors who served in this prestigious unit of the United States Air Force, and their families. Activated in September 1941, the 49th has been active continually since, and has operated as a pursuit squadron, a fighter-interceptor squadron, and, in its current capacity, as a fighter training squadron. To a man, we are all immensely proud to have been a part of so distinguished an outfit. Long may it serve. The above plaque was presented to the Air Force Academy in Colorado, where it resides in a wall of memories that pay tribute to great units.
