112th Fighter Squadron celebrates 100th anniversary

The 180th Fighter Wing held a ceremony celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 112th Fighter Squadron at Toledo Express Airport in Swanton, Ohio on Oct. 21, 2017. Today’s 180FW was formed in October 1995, but its origins stretch back to 1917 when the 112th Aero Squadron was organized at Kelly Field in San Antonio, Texas. In 1927, the unit moved to the Cleveland area where it became known as the 112th Observation Squadron. The unit moved to Toledo, Ohio in 1958 and has flown in conflicts from World War II to Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.
