Hi,

For those still waiting/wondering, I applied around 23:00 on Thursday evening and just received confirmation around 15:00 Saturday, No.117. as Sam said... now to sort the logistics of getting there sorted. Looks to be relatively straight forward.

Cheers

Since yesterday, the maximum number of participants is reached.
Due to high demand, the final number was increased from 300 to 500. so, it could be that some of you will still get a confirmation the next days.

Wish luck to everyone and let us hope for nice, sunny weather without to much heat!

My friends, the road distance from Athens is 350 km and from Thessaloniki 150 km.

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

I plan to fly into Thessaloniki on the Wednesday and back on the Saturday. I've got a hotel booked in Larissa, but if anyone wants o go halves on a rental car/fuel I'd be up for that!

Anyone know what we are supposed to do with the latest email regarding the embassy in Athens?

I have emailed the embassy using the general address on the gov.uk website explaining why I was emailing and attached a copy of my passport and provisional place allocation.

I have no idea whether our embassies have access to the details of 66m or however many there in issue passports but I guess all you can do is as the HAF have requested.

The question is who at the embassy does the HAF contact (air attache perhaps?) and will that be the same person who receives our emails? In the email I requested that it be forwarded to someone who might have responsibility for dealing with such matters or provide me with their contact details so I can approach them directly.

Fingers crossed!

Anyone else get this last night?

'After checking of personal data from the competent Greek authorities, the final list of participants will be drawn. Unfortunately we cannot accurately tell you when.
We will update you about anything new.
We will also send you very soon detailed information about the event.'

So does this mean that those that have purchased airline tickets and hotel rooms and booked car hire may not actually get to go?

Slightly worrying I must say.

As far as I know, the only case that someone will not be accepted would be, if the respective embassy says so to the HAF. So, if you have behaved yourself in your home country and are not on any "blacklist", you should not worry :wink:

Regarding the sending of your data to the embassy, just send a e-mail with a short explanation and a passport copy to your respective military attache. The HAF has contacted the embassies and tha attaches know what to do.

114PM,

You are indeed a credit to the Hellenic Airforce, thank you.

If we meet over the open days, I'll buy you a beer :worship:

Hi - anyone know how best to contact the military attaches? Via the embassy in Athens, or do they have their own details? TIA

I'm rather hoping that my email (and everybody else's) will be forwarded to the military attache by whoever is responsible for dealing with the embassy's general email address.

My friends,

please find below a message from 348 MTA.

Dear friends,

in order to avoid any misunderstanding we would like to inform you of the following:
The list with 535 spotters is final and there will not be any further increase of the number of participants! The first 535 who sent the application are on the list and will of course participate in this event! Someone will only be excluded if the relevant authorities find anything alarming for the security of the unit and of the entire organization. This is not in our responsibility!
For the record, the number of 535 came after the huge participation from your side, by increasing the initial number of 300 to 500, and the good will from our side to satisfy as many of you as possible.
We just had to stop by 500 due to eventual organizational problems and timely begining of the security checks! We should not forget that this event takes place in a military area with certain restrictions!

Finally, please forgive us any omissions or errors since it is the first time for all of us, that such an event is organized in this way!

Thank you very much for your understanding!

Fingers crossed that the embassies play their part.

Hi 114PM,

Just a couple of questions if I may?

1) I'm hiring a car at Athens airport, will there be on base parking for the spotters event?
2) I note using google earth you have a selection of preserved aircraft on display, will these be accessible on the spotters day / display day for photography?

Many thanks
Dave
