The 125th Liaison Squadron


"The 125th Liaison Squadron" , formerly part of the VFF (Vintage Flight Foundation), is named after the original squadron attached to the 9th U.S. Air Force during World War 2 in the European Theater of Operations (ETO).

Our Squadron consists of two liaison warbirds, often referred to as "L-Birds". Our first addition is a 1944 USAAF WW2 Piper Cub L-4J Grasshopper. Our second addition is a 1942 USAAF Stinson L-5 Sentinel. Both aircraft were used as Artillery Spotter / Liaison aircraft during World War 2. We present these aircraft to the public in order to highlight the importance of these rather unpopular aircraft that were actually on top and in the middle of the action at the front. Their pilots, observers and ground crews operated close to the moving front lines during WW2. Their place in history is often forgoten or not correctly highlighted. We try to change this and give them all the honour and respect they rightfully deserve.

 

Additionally we do research, gather aviation pictures, documents, aviation artefacts and share valuable historical information on liaison aircraft. Last but not least we ferry Piper and Stinson aircraft across Europe and have experience with transporting dismantled aircraft across the world. So if you need assistance, we can help you with our expertise.

 

Our Piper L-4 and Stinson L-5 are available for Foto shoots on the Ground or in the Air. Either in Static or in Action they make a nice background for your World War 2 Pictures or movie production. We support WW2 reenacting, living history events and commerative celebrations either on the Ground or in the air. For your complete World War 2 set up we can provide the right contacts. Please contact us for further information.
