Last November the famous aviation photographer Katsuhiko Tokunaga visited Greece and especially Hellenic Air Force Araxos AB to take photos from the new 335 Squadron F-16 Blk52+ Advanced. That event took place in order to accompany the text of Code One magazine by Eric Hehs (see full article here). Airforce.gr has got the honor to officially present some of the best photos he got from F-16 Blk52+ Advanced and A-7E Corsair too that still fly with 336 Squadron Olympos from Araxos AB. We would like to thank 116 CW Commander, 335 Squadron Commander, especially the 116 CW Security Office and of course Mr. Tokunaga himself for the trust and cooperation.

The training of ITAF pilots that took place in 120 Air Training Wing finished recently. The Italian pilots had the opportunity to finish their Basic Training with T-6 Texan aircrafts with 364 Air Training Squadron. The patch that created for that particular purpose is really beautiful.

The wait was worthwhile. We finally have the HAF/80th Anniversary Special Edition pictorial book by Special Projects in hand. A brand new pictorial book that is available starting 26th of April in order to commemorate the 80th anniversary since the establlishment of the Hellenic Air Force. The HAF / 80 YEARS book has 160 pages containing 164 color photos and 16 aircraft profiles. It is available in softcover and in a limited edition of only 200 pieces with hardcover. We have to say that the hardcovered version of the book comes signed by the author Mr. Antonios Tsagkaratos. In order to achieve this fine result which is characterized by integrity, creativity and uniqueness Mr. Tsagkaratos made numerous visits to Hellenic Air Force air bases and took place in specially designed flights over several months.
