Colonel "350 SQUADRON" tells us, on the basis of various pictures and texts the history of the 350th fi ghter squadron since their creation in 1941 up to now. Each chapter is given over to a type of aircraft the squadron was once equipped with. Short and lively articles relate the important moments in the life of the squadron; they are illustrated with lots of black and white – and colour photos: their battles during the Second World War, their trainings, their missions… their good fortunes and misfortunes. Annexes cover more technical information, such as a detailed list of the 484 pilots and navigators who have been serving in the squadron since the fi rst day. Honorary Colonel airman Jules Jacob took a job at the Air Force in 1966 and got his pilot's brevet in 1968. In 1970 he joined the 350th Squadron he would fl y with up to 1982. He would even command it from 1985 up to 1987. He retired in 2000 after fl ying F-84F, F-104G, F-16A, Mirage 5B and Fouga Magister for about 4000 hours.
