HAF RF-4E bows out in style.... down low!

Postby Savvas on Wed 10 May 2017, 6:49 am

A couple of months before the official HAF RF-4E retirement and its host squadron's 348TRS "Eyes" decommissioning, I had the unique opportunity to capture the legendary Greek Recce Phantoms in one of their phinal low level flying sorties. The sight of low flying Greek recce rhinos was second to none, a sight never to be seen again...

Here are some photos of that day. Enjoy!!!

1. Ex-GAF RF-4E 7499 exiting low level flying area. This particular aircraft some days later got a special livery for the RF-4E retirement and the decommissioning of the 348TRS "Eyes".
