Yeah!! Just received my confirmation! Fingers crossed it will be as great as the retirement event of the A-7.

Hopefully all of the HAF jets will be arriving on the 4th, incl the Andravida F-4s, M2000s and T-2's.

Go on the safe side and don't expect to much other HAF stuff ;)
Please remember, it's the disbandment of a dedicated recce squadron, so, the emphasis is on foreign recce squadrons and, as usual in Greece, the Zeus and Daedalus demo teams.
I suppose, with a little luck we can expect Phantoms from Andravida, but T-2 ... hmmmm, I don't believe so.

Sure, multi role squadrons with recce pods instead of purpose built camera ships.

A T-2 would be a perfect addition, cause it will be one of the last remaining jet engine dinosaur within the HAF, after the RF-4`s are gone. I believe 348MTA will rock it :worship:

So which units are we talking about? And how many HAF RF-4Es are still active?. Scramble database lists fourteen.

A friend of mine said 4 will be flying this year till May, there was 5 in 2016, one was shut down late december.
During the 60th anniversary of the unit in 2013, Italian AMX and Spanish Hornets visited the base, so my quess they could be there again.
I could see German Tornados from Tactical Air Force Wing 51 "Immelmann" and Polish F-16. Greece and Poland has good connections,
so it would be understandable.

Guys, in a few days, all people accepted will get the confirmation :)

In 2013, except Italy and Spain, also French Mirage F-1 participated and the Germans were invited, but didn't come.
So, we have at least 4 countries invited for sure. Also "Levente's" comment about Poland is also correct and maybe Belgium.
