XUAS Ghost Squadron

What is XUAS Ghost Squadron?

XUAS (“ex UAS”) is a newly-formed “squadron” with xx667/JAFRY and xx546/BOLE as the founding members. Our mission is to continue enjoying the memories of all things UAS, including flying our Bulldogs as often as we can. Anyone with an association with the UAS is most welcome to “join” though there is no actual membership process. For now, simply register your potential interest by commenting on this Blog. Basically, we thought it would be a good idea to create some kind of loose forum for ex-UAS types to communicate. It seems there are quite a few of such people keen to make contact, whether it be around flying or social engagements.

Videos and Photos from our "Mini Flying Camp" which took place over the weekend of 1 October in celebration of UGSAS75.com
