  6. It seems hard to believe that the Flight Crew is three years old. Time really does fly when you are having fun! Especially when you are having fun with the crew–and with Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca!!!
    What a crew! Yea!

  8. CONGRATS ! ! ! This has been a great place to come to share with friends and hear the latest of people’s activities. Naturally, it is a great place to keep up with Il Volo. So BRAVO ! to the staff of Flight Crew.

  9. Happy Anniversary to Marie and Kelly, and thanks for all your hard work in keeping this blog going. I feel privileged to be part of the Flight Crew. This is a place where I can express my love for our “boys” and not be met with raised eyebrows and rolling eyes (my family).

  10. Big Big Thanks go to the ladies who all got this organized and off the ground. Especially big thanks to Marie Crider and Kelly Aitich, they are awewsome!! Another big thanks go to all the contributors who keep us all iinformed and entertained with everything that is IL VOLO. We know there is an official fan club nowdays but as far as I am concerned this is the place to be for me!

  11. Il Volo Flight and Il Volo grew together. The thanks goes to the creators of this site and their hard work daily making it possible for us to keep in touch with each other and the boys.
    The Rose that Grew from Concrete

    “Did you hear about the rose that grew
    from a crack in the concrete?
    Proving nature’s law is wrong it
    learned to walk with out having feet.

    Funny it seems, but by keeping it’s dreams,
    it learned to breathe fresh air.

    Long live the rose that grew from concrete
    when no one else ever cared.”
    (Tupac Shakur)

  12. Happy Anniversary! So happy I found you and all the wonderful people on The Flight Crew. Thanks for all you do to support Il Volo and keeping us up to date with their activities etc. and thanks for all the laughs and smiles!

  13. Happy anniversary to all the crew , I have admired since the first day I found you . Thanks for being so nice and full of love. Thanks also to IL VOLO that we have enjoyed .

  14. My life has become one big “senior moment” and I can’t remember how I got onto the “Flight Crew”, but next to finding Il Volo, it’s one of the neatest things I’ve done in many years! I’ve “met” so many nice folks and even got to actually meet two in person!! Oh, how I would love to meet the rest of you! A GREAT BIG TEXAS HUG TO THOSE WHO HAD THIS WONDERFUL IDEA!! May we continue our flight with THE FLIGHT for a long time to come!!♡♡♡

  15. Happy Anniversary and a Big Thank You to the Il Volo Flight Crew for all the time and effort in keeping this site filled with interesting stories and tidbits on Italy and “The Guys”

  16. Three years already? This has been a flight of long periods of anticipation interrupted infrequently by sheer joy as we fly together and with our guys! Wow! I never would have dreamed that my “senior years” would be so filled every day by the opening of this fansite and reading and sharing the fun and the love of Il Volo and these wonderful fans! Thank you Marie and Kelly for all that you do. My life, for one, has been changed forever by the guys and this site. IlVolove to you all.

  17. To all of my friends on The Flight Crew, the past year has been one heck of a ride, and I have enjoyed every second of it. Thank you to Marie my fellow Buckeye, and the hardworking Kelly. How great to be part of such diversified group but who are all of one mind. We love IL VOLO❤️.

  18. Thank You.  All of you!

  19. Thank you Crew for all that you do to keep your
    members informed. I found the site in May 2014
    and it was such a spirit lifter for me. Thank you
    Marie and Kelly for all the work (hours) you put
    in just so we can keep up with our guys. They
    are precious to me and I read about and listen
    to their music every day. I think the kind of guys
    they are behind the scenes and face to face has
    not been equaled by any other group. Keep up
    the good work ladies and God bless you in all
    you do for Il Volo and the Flight Crew.

  20. Adding my thanks and heartiest congratulations to all you wonderful ladies who keep us connected to our favorite Italians!!! Thank you so much for all your time and tremendous efforts!

  21. I can only add my simple congratulations and heartfelt thanks for all the work that everyone puts into this site. It really is one of the joys of each day for me.

  22. Congratulations to all of Flight Crew!! Thank you for all your hard work keeping us up to date with activities in Il Vololand!!! Love each post !!! I am so glad I can share my love for our precious trio & know you all understand!!!

  23. Congratulations to one and all. I found this site over two years ago and it has been the highlight of my everyday routine. I check in at 5:00 am everyday and love reading all the stories about our boys and all the feedback from you wonderful people whom I have grown to know through this site. Thank you Marie and Kelly for all your hard work. It is so appreciated by all of us. It was wonderful meeting so many of you in Las Vegas. By the way people, on Monday, my 3rd great grandson (MARKUS ANTHONY MORRIS) made his entrance into the word weighing in at 8 lbs. 13 oz and 21 inch long. He has two other bros. GERHARDT AND KASIMIR. Thought I’d put a plug in for the loves of my life. Anyway, thank you again to all the Flight Crew members who work tirelessly to keep this site so interesting.

  24. BIG CONGRATULATION and thank Marie,Kelly and all contributors !!!
    I watch IVFC from the beginning,I like an kindly friendly wittycisms,playfully exchange of views among member – a woman.And when I see a witty colage of photos – for example Marie + Igna ( excuse me Marie but it suited you so much ) it always my mood improves!
    I have met many great people (even if only a distance) and thank you for accepting us from distant Europe.
    Presepasco – happy grannie – I congratulate on the birth of a grandson Markus.

  25. Happy Birthday (a day late LOL) Flight Crew! This is truly such a unique, wonderful sight, and the place I feel I can go to and just mentally ”chill”, and read things from people who have the same love and enthusiasm for my ‘little guys.’ Thank you for all the work you do to keep The Flight Crew so amazing, and for letting people like me share your love for Il Volo! I bless the day God let me find you!

    1. I have to echo Marie’s sentiment: THANK YOU ALL! You keep us laughing and motivated, and I know for me, even though I might not be seen as much, you all are usually never far from my thoughts.

      Marie has been huge in keeping the site going. She gets so many e-mails and organizes everything behind the scenes, and is very accommodating with my flying in and out due to my schedule. Thank you so much for that!

      I also have to thank all of our contributors that have helped take us to the next level. So many different articles and thoughts…it has been a joyful, humbling experience to be a part of this.

      Thank you for coming everyday, and here’s to another great year!

      Much love,
