Georges Guynemer: Flying Pioneer, Sky Knight

 Looking back on 1914, the outbreak of World War I, when flying technology was still in its infancy. The French Clément Ader made its first test flight in 1890, but the American Wright brothers formally made a successful test flight in 1903. In 1909, Louis Blériot successfully flew over the English Channel. Georges Guynemer was one of the few pioneer pilots who had the opportunity to taste the sky.

 Georges Guynemer was born in 1894. He was frail and sick since childhood. After the outbreak of World War I, he aspired to join Rong Weiguo. Because of his poor constitution, he was rejected by the French military. He was later admitted to the Air Force department, which was not long established, as a mechanic apprentice. He has been very obsessed with flying. He was qualified as an Air Force pilot in April 1915 and was assigned to the third ‘Stork squadron’. He later piloted the Morane-Saulnier Type L fighter to demonstrate first-class flight technology. Later, he will The Morane-Saulnier Type L fighter jets that they drove were all marked with ‘Vieux Charles’.
 In 1912, the 12th Fighter Brigade of France formed the third squadron in Reims (Hans). When the war broke out, the squadron was sent to Alsace (Alsace) and decided to use the stork as the stork is very common in that area Some pilots even reported that a group of storks flew randomly during the flight, witnessing the deep fate of the squadron and flying storks.

Georges Guynemer’s SPAD fighter S.VII, nicknamed Vieux Charles
 Georges Guynemer was initially assigned a simple task of observing the enemy. By July 19, 1915, he had shot down enemy fighters for the first time as a fighter pilot. At that time, the Nieuport 10 fighter he piloted was more powerful and had a better record. He soon became the best pilot of the French Air Force and was awarded the Legion of Honor Medal of Honor by the 21st birthday. His outstanding talent and technology even influenced the design of Air Force fighters (including SPAD fighters). Thanks to his ingenious suggestions, SPAD became one of the most outstanding fighter aircraft of the French military. He participated in the battles of Verdun and the Somme and was wounded many times. On September 17, 1917, he was lifted off as Captain of the Flying Stork Squadron, but he did not expect that this was the last mission. He was only 22 years old when he died for the country. During his three years in the army, he participated in many battles and made great achievements, including confirming the shooting down of 53 enemy aircraft (and the possibility of shooting down another 35 enemy aircraft). The French Air Force later seized him as a military flying hero.

Air Force Hero Georges Guynemer Memorial Stamp
 Established in 1935, the École de l’Air has adopted the motto ‘Overcoming’ of Georges Guynemer as its school motto, and has a memorial plaque next to the Air Base 701 (701 Air Base) runway in Salon-de-Provence The following words are engraved to encourage today’s flight students: ‘Until you have given everything, you have given nothing,

Flying storks soar
 The Flying Stork Squadron has added the Flying Stork logo to the fuselage since 1914. The outstanding flying skills and heroic performance of the team members have made the squadron a legend in flight history. In 1916, the squadron commander praised Georges Guynemer as ‘the best flying stork’ in the team, which is indeed a praise.
 From World War I to the truce on November 11, 1918, the Flying Stork Squadron confirmed that it had shot down 178 enemy aircraft (and possibly another 204 enemy aircraft), becoming one of the most famous flying combat units in the history of the French Air Force; the squadron is currently named SPA 3.
 In 1940, the Flying Stork Squadron returned to the battlefield, at which time the team members were reassigned to the RAF 329 Squadron. By 1945, the 1/2 Flying Stork Squadron was established and equipped with a Spitfire Spitfire, and later equipped with a P47 Thunderbolt Thunder fighter. The squadron was dispatched to the Indochina Peninsula the following year. Currently, the squadron is based on the 116 Air Base in Luxeuil-Saint Sauveur and is equipped with the Mirage 2000-5F fleet. In 2012, the squadron celebrated its 100th anniversary. The celebration was sponsored by Bell & Ross.
