Good Morning

Finally Part 2 from Souda.OP Unified Protector is now over and the foreign Jets have returned to their Homebases!
So I dont think its a Problem anymore to show these Pictures I have taken early September.


Qatari AF had 4 Mirage 2000-5(E)DDA at Souda when I was there.They were coming from Doha IAP 1st Fighter Wing
7 SQD.They flew under "Operation Harmattan" as one shared Unit with the French Air Force

Note the external fuel Tanks used from the french M2000 !

Liking very much here, those Mirage 2000s are stunning, but far too many 2000Bs with empty back seats! :grin:

Cracking stuff, great colours on the Qatari Mirages. The Sea King looks equally impressive

Hi Hans-Jurgen,

Sehr schone Bilder! :worship:

Bleibt ein toller Air base, Souda mit vielen verschiedene Jets (leider schwierig draussen zu Spotten...) :hide:

Grusse,
