Thanks Hans! Awesome pictures!! I hope you have another chance to photograph these great aircraft before they stop flying. I hope that will be for a couple more years yet.

I meant to say I hope that "won't" be for a couple more years yet. What is the latest word on how much longer the Hellenic Corsairs will remain operational?

Thanks.

Outstanding pictures Hans - as usual! I hope you can visit Araxos again in the future and provide us with some more spectacular A-7 pictures and updates.

Thanks for posting and sharing.

Hi Hans,

Please stop posting these photos :wink: you are making an old man come over all funny :drool:

Perhaps I will write to the CO of 336 Mira and beg a t shirt off him :lol:

So with a bit of luck I may see the A'7s visiting Lemnos next week or the week after....I live in hope...a couple of years ago, lying on the beach a pair came by at full chat, just skimming the waves...I nearly cr***ed my pants :worship:

Best Regards
Geoff
