  1. Happy 2nd anniversary! To all of you who keep us up to date with the guys on this page. Keep up the awesome work!

  2. Happy 2nd Anniversary! Thanks for all you do in keeping us informed; for the great articles, videos, etc. Keep up the great work and know how much all of your efforts are very much appreciated!

  3. “Life is sweet because of the
    friends we have made
    And the things which in common we share;
    We want to live on, not because of ourselves,
    But because of the ones who would care.
    It’s living and doing for somebody else
    On that all of life’s splendor depends,
    And the joy of it all, when we count it all up,
    Is found in the making of friends.

    Thanks to the creators of this site and all the many people that are now sharing the joy of following three young men thru their journey in life.

  8. Happy Anniversary and my heartfelt thanks for all you do! I am so happy I found The Flight Crew. You bring so much to our love of Il Volo and not just with your photos and videos etc. You have so many interesting articles and information about Italy and its wonderful people and you share your sometimes funny and beautiful feelings and stories about Il Volo.

Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca have brought so much love, peace and happiness into so many lives and you help share that.

  17. Happy 2nd Anniversary. Can’t believe two years have already come and gone. Seems like it was just yesterday this site was created. Keep up the great job in keeping everyone Il Volo happy.

  18. Congratulations and many thanks to all the contributors!! It takes lots of time and effort, dedication and love for Il Volo to continue this wonderful site day by day. Very much appreciated, I also am a daily reader of this site. Once again grazie mille from flag number four on your stats.

  19. Happy, Happy Second Anniversary! Thank you so much for giving me a place I can talk about my love for Piero, Gianluca, and Ignazio with out being met with raised eyebrows and rolling eyes. And as a bonus, I have met many, many new friends who feel exactly the same way about our boys. I look forward every morning to reading what’s new on the Flight Crew site.

  20. THE US TOUR SCHEDULE HAS BEEN POSTED ON IL VOLO MUNDIAL FACEBOOK and they are coming to DALLAS, AUSTIN AND SAN ANTONIO. All three cities I can make the trip to. Wish it was next week.

  21. A Happy 2nd Anniversary to the Board, and to all of you around the world who follow this site. Marie, you were right! I had no idea! It’s pretty scary to know that when I write on here, which you have so graciously allowed; I’m not just sharing my thoughts with those whose names I see here, but with people all over the world. In reality, whatever I might convey in my words, can ultimately affect so many. I repeat, that’s scary; but at the same time, what an opportunity! It’s here that I can share the admiration I have for three outstanding young men, not even from my country, whose aim it is to bring beauty, love and respect, to as many as they possibly can . That is their goal; that is their dream. Thank you, FLIGHT CREW!

  22. A big huge THANK YOU to the Flight Crew! Right now I have zip idea how exactly I discovered this wonderful site but it has been such a huge blessing for me. I too start my day with checking out the latest on the Flight Crew and while I have only met a few of you in person, I feel like I could easily sit down with anyone of you and just start gabbing away. IL VOLO has blessed my life and The Flight Crew keeps me informed, amused and thrilled day by day.

    Thank you, Thank you thank you! Or as the guys might say: Mille grazie!

    Your pirate,

    1. Congratulations Flight Crew for giving us so much information on these young men for 2 years. Right now I am watching IL Volo from Pompeii on PBS and enjoying the show very much.
      Thanks again for all the hard work you do to give us so much information <3

  23. Happy 2nd Anniversary to the Flight Crew Board & all contributors, readers, & posters. To quote my favorite Pirate: “IL VOLO has blessed my life and The Flight Crew keeps me informed, amused and thrilled day by day.” Actually, “amused” is not strong enough. Some days what I read here makes me LOL!! Thanks so much.

  24. My sincere thanks and appreciation for all the Flight Crew contributors! It hardly seems like two years–but then again Il Volo time never seems to be very long.
    Concerts are over before you can catch your breath, and years fly by with the blink of an eye!
    Mille grazie to everyone who comes to this site to share, learn and love!

  25. Happy Anniversary and I thank all of you so much for all your hard work and for starting this site. I found it by accident early last year when I was googling something about Il volo. Thanks again and many many more years to come!

  26. HAPPY,HAPPY 2ND ANNIVERSARY to the amazing board,contributors and the entire Flight Crew family !!! I remember well the day I found this site. There was a little Flight Crew post, I can’t remember where, that I happened to see and when I brought it up my life changed forever !!! This was in October 2013 right after I had been to a concert in Orlando and I had nowhere to vent my Il Volo passion !! Here we all share and understand this passion and love we feel for these amazing young men and are able to express it freely and openly with each other.
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the news,music,photos,videos,poems and stories that I start my day with every morning !!!💕🎶💕🎶💕
