The 510th Fighter Squadron provides combat airpower on demand to U.S. and NATO combatant commanders as well as the National Command Authority in order to meet National Security objectives. The unit performs air and space control and force application roles of counterair, strategic attack, and counterland including interdiction and close-air support with 21 F-16CMs employing state of the art munitions in support of the joint, NATO, and combined operations.
We have new photos posted in the Global Buzzard Gallery of the Buzzards in Supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom and from other locations. The 510th Association is still looking for photos/movies between 2000 and 2007 to help record the history of the World's Greatest Fighter Squadron!
We are always looking for help in identifying Buzzards in Uniform, so if you recognize anyone, let us know!

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),
Benvenuti (welcome) to Aviano Air Base, Italy, home of the 31st Fighter Wing. I am the 510th's Web Master and I have been given the pleasure of being your virtual sponsor for your upcoming PCS move. You'll be assigned to the 510th Fighter Squadron, one of two F-16 equipped squadrons stationed here. My goal is to make your move as easy, enjoyable and hassle-free as possible. By now I am sure you've heard many things about Aviano from all kinds of sources and I'll bet you're as confused as I was before I got here and found out for myself. Through this letter, I hope to give you some "first-hand" information that will help allay your fears. Also, check out the Family Support Center's information package on Aviano.
