Spectacular set - but I do hope there wasn't any loss of life or serious damage.

Who isn't missing this beauty?

Throwback from 2013 and it's the one and only Orange Lion of the RNLAF F-16 Demo Team! I really miss the awesome livery of the Dutch Demo Team.

Re: Tanagra 28th Feb 2019

Fighter Weapons School... The Greek Way **2018 Edition**

The 2018 SOT (FWS) training course didn't have anything different to mention compared to later years, but always the best chance to see all Hellenic Air Force aircraft together: all variants of F-16C/Ds, M2000s and F-4Es. A-7Es and RF-4Es are so missed these days... Here's a small collection from th...

Great stuff, I notice that all the serials have been erased from your shots was this on instruction of the HAF? Yes indeed. Nice images Savvas. Strange they asked you to scrub the serials as they have never asked me to do this. My last visit was to Araxos earlier this year, is this something introd...
