Re: 03jan2018 PICS: crew of Greek AF T-2 Buckeye had to bail

160086 or 160098 I will say 98 if you watch these picture of the tail..
The shape and brown part around the number does it to me!

Re: Trapani Decimomannu

But still very much alive and kicking! Interesting tail-art, looks like what? An ancient Central-American Maya-fighter?!? It's 339 Mira which has 'Aias' (Ajax) as its squadron badge, a Greek hero from the Trojan Wars. This is a very badly painted version of the badge! Mike Mike, it's NOT badly pain...

Re: Joint Stars Exercise 2017 Decimomannu 24/10/2017

And from that same post we learned that 339 is disbanding / disbanded so 338 is now the only F-4 "super squadron" left in the Hellenic Air Force. Tomorrow, 339 will merge with 338 leaving this the sole unit with HAF. Some Phantoms are to be WFU some for spare parts, still 33 examples are a bit high...

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.
That's correct, 7496 is in Andravida AB.

Joop are you certain about the 4398??
Pretty sure, I discussed with a fellow spotter if it wasn't 4388, but we were sure it is 4398
Made a visit here last Thursday and it was the 4399..(read with eyeball mkI)!

Your comment equals the commanders opinion. He said: I do not know if it is good that we still fly the RF-4E as we are the only one in Europe. HAF is good in flying things that are the ONLY ONE in Europe.. RF-84 C-47 T-33 A-7 T-2 Buckeye Ag-Cat M18 Dromader YS-11 F-104 T-33 Than again, THAT's what ...

Re: 4 Aviation Trip Greece 2015

Why would 71765 be on QRA or at Andravida? No RF-4s are based at Andravida and they would certainly not be on QRA. As they do not need a Recce task ONLY, the RF's have more tasks to forfill in the HAF.. QRA is one of them! Two samples I took during one of my visits to Larisa. Recovery from a QRA fl...
