THE ASSOCIATION OF SPANISH FLYERS WELCOMES YOU!

This site was created in order to pass on the rich heritage that we, as Spanish Linguists, share. We have a history going back to the early 60's with operators flying on the original RJs. If SCOUT or LEVI flew, we were there, or we trained those of other tongues how to use our beloved platform. In any event, we invite you to browse this site.
ALL CALL

We're a go for Beaner Reunion 2012! The event will be in San Antonio - October 25 - 28, 2012. This year's reunion will commemorate 50 years that the the Spanish Linguist has served country, starting with 13 days of nerve-racking brinksmanship, better known as the Cuban Missile Crisis. Further details will be forthcoming as the planning continues to make this memorable event one that honors the men and women who answered the call and shaped a career field and a country.

    COPES' CORNER



    A LITTLE HISTORY

    The most recent AFISRA summary history write-up, "Legacy 1948-2010". On page -63- a caption reads: Howard AFB, Panama. Question: What base is really depicted in the image (since its not Howard)?
    Here's a blog entry, a tribute to a linguist who recently passed -- by Richard Fenwick. Not a Beaner, no. But nonetheless, one of the countless Silent Warriors.
