Eyes in Time (The end of the Film)

Postby JonoUK on Thu 25 May 2017, 6:16 pm

Hi All,

Like a few others I was there to witness the final three Reece Phantoms of the Hellenic Air Force be put to rest. While the spotters day didn't play out as the squadron had hoped I think its fair to say a good time was had with plenty of opportunity to catch the jets in their final hour. A couple of repeat frames maybe but hopefully some different ones too and can you really get enough of a Reece Rhino? On with the pics

Super stuff, thanks for sharing. :up:

Why do jets (from Western countries at least) often have all the warning and text around the cockpit in English? I understand the international ATC language is English, but surely a Greek speaker is the most likely to have to read 'clear still area before closing canopy' - I wouldn't want him to have to get his Collins Greek/English pocket dictionary out!

And yes, I know I'm being slightly silly and that they would just learn what it meant, but you get my point. Rafales, for example, appear to have it all in French only.
