Talk:No. 99 Squadron RAF
What did it fly from 1976 to 2001?
- The squadron was disbanded in 1976 and only reformed in 2000. See here. I will update the article. Bastie 05:52, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
(Madras Presidency) ?
"What would later become No. 99 (Madras Presidency) Squadron was originally formed at Yatesbury, Wiltshire in England on 15 August 1917 ..." This is only mentioned once in the article - When did it happen and is it still called Madras Presidency?--Kiltpin (talk) 15:35, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
Your information is factually incorrect .
My father was a warrant officer navigator in 99 Sqdn, during 1942-1944. During that period the Sqdn was based at Poona in India, and bombed targets in Burma, including supply dropping to Ord Wingates Chindits. Kindly correct this article, as your failure to acknowledge this phase, where the sqdns air losses were highest, an insult to those who died during this period. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:22, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
- The article does in fact state that the Squadron operated in India, although it doesn't go into great details about what it did their.It could better be described as incomplete rather than incorrect, and to fix this problem needs people with access to appropriate [[WP:RS|reliable sources to make the appropriate additions.Nigel Ish (talk) 21:41, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
