HISTORY OF THE SQUADRON
On August 27th, 1939, the I/3 squadron composed of the SPA 69 (cat head) and SPA 88 (Snake) is stationed on Velaine-en-Haye (Lorraine) airfield. During the Campaign of France, while the Luftwaffe was bombing the French air bases, the group is credited with 52 victories.
Pilots leave France to go to Tunisia on June 18th 1939. They settle down afterward in Oran, Algeria. At the beginning of August, the group takes part in surveillance missions of the North African coasts and the protection of allied convoys. The pilots start fighting in April 1944 for the liberation of Corsica and Italy. The unit goes north through the valley of the Rhône, to land in Germany. When Germans surrender, on May 8th 1945, the squadron proudly displays 108 victories and received 190 citations! Further to the war, the squadron bears the name "Corsica" because of its active participation in the liberation of the island.
The Corsica squadron is dissolved on February 28th 1966. It is reborn one month later, under the name we know today: fighter jet squadron 3/11 "Corsica". It is then based at Bremgarten, in the Federal Republic of Germany.
The Squadron will participate to multiple operations across Africa: in Senegal, Gabon, Djibouti, Togo, and finally in Nigeria.
Today, this unit is the only one operating two types of aircrafts with totally different purposes. First of all, four Mirage 2000-5F are supplied by the fighter jet squadron 1/2 Storks. They are intended for exclusively air-air missions. Finally, three Mirage 2000D, are intended for ground attack and bombing missions.
