The fighting 99th boasts several specialized sub squadrons also known as 'elements'. These are typically 4 person teams who have worked together for extended periods of time with each other and their chosen air frames. They have their own aircraft skins which are then added to our missions. Alot of work goes into creating these skins and ensuring every skin has a slot in every mission and as such only dedicated & active members will receive such honors.

Any member wishing to join an existing element should contact the flight lead (position 1) located in the Squadron Roster.

Any member wishing to start their own flight element should contact a squadron admin or post a new thread in the forums.
