Hellenic Air Force Relics
Greece
2010 to 2019
My good friend Themis Vranas produced the book 'Fighting the Lethe', this labour of love, now sold out, details every former Hellenic Air Force aircraft that has been withdrawn from service. Many of the 700+ plus aircraft are to be found on air bases or in a few museums. However quite a number are dispersed around the country located at memorials in villages or towns. This page is dedicated to the aircraft I have discovered as I have travelled around this wonderful country.
