"in a few days" For us it will feel a few years! :)
Starting to get slightly worried already. Sometimes my e-mails to Gmail accounts do not seem to arrive. I've sent my application on Wednesday evening, haven't received a confirmation yet...

How long should it take to receive a confirmation?

Yes, but it should be no problem.
You must only inform your embassy about your visit to the spotterday and that's all.
I know, it sounds strange, but it's a direct order from above ;)

True, they asked me as well to inform my embassy, nothing serious, just a simple info.

Standard procedure for many years already.
The Dutch Defense Attache office is based in Rome : rom-defat@minbuza.nl
They forward it to Athens.

From Athens 350 km and from Thessaloniki 150 km.

Don't forget, there is also the relative cheap KTEL long distance busses running multiple times per day from both cities to Larissa:

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.
ONLY 3 are still active and will perform a flyby during the ceremony. 7450 (spec. 60th mks) 7499 (will receive spec mks) and 71765 (last original Greek). THAT'S it, all other info is wrong. On 28 dec. 7496 left for Andravida for wfu. On 25 januari,7500 was wfu...

Are you sure about 7519?

I am asking because it is definitely preserved on plinths at the 140th Operational Intelligence & Electronic Warfare Group at Larissa.

The fifth active RF-4E was 7496. I suppose this one is now in Andravida.
