Besides the editing which can be redone, that looks nice!
Having been to Tanagra myself as well, that looks like you have been on base on Monday. Was that by prior arrangement or something?
Will reupload these, possibly tonight. The first batch I thought were coming out over compressed as Flickr insists on resizing to 500pixel. My Greek contacts had arranged base access for Monday although nothing was 100% for me as a non Greek until Monday morning. Fortunatelyeverything went smoothly ( unlike the Friday when we were kicked off the base after overstaying our welcome by 40 minutes to catch the arrivals. Lots of animated conversations in Greek with me wondering if I was going to act out my own version of the Kalamta incident a few years back!)
OK, got in last night and first thing I noticed was that the appearance of the images was markedly different to viewing them on my PC at work. So first thing was to recalibrate my monitor. I've also reworked the pics and used less compression on them so hopefuly an improvement?
The report in this months Aircraft Illustrated suggests that Tanagra is near Athens - if that is true, and flights available I'm wondering how easy it might be to make the proposed show next year - any advice? - public transport etc.

Its about an hour from Athens. I'm not sure how well served Tanagra is by public transport from there, I was staying in Chalkida about 30 minutesaway by bus, although as I was with locals and we drove on to the base, I can't say how easy it would be solely by public transport. I got the impression it wasa good walk from the bus stop.
I noticed AI were mentioning a show next year, however, the HAF had indicated in 2005 that it would be biennial, only for nothing to happen in '07. I'd refrain from booking anything you couldn't then cancel, until next years is definitely confirmed. Going by previous, that will probably be next June!
