This former Marineflieger (German Naval Aviation) serial 21+31 was delivered to Greece in June 1986. The Italian built aircraft, by FIAT, was retired in March 1993 at Araxos. Only weeks after that ceremony it was pictured at this base. The RF-104G (R for reconnaissance) can be recognized by the built-in camera bay just behind the nose-wheel housing. Only some 15 RF's were delivered to Greece (of the just over 100 Starfighters they ever had in total inventory). The RF's were all former German aircraft. Several of these never flew in Hellenic service and were only used for spareparts.

"Tigris"! This Greek F-104G of 336 MPK was painted in a famous "Tigris" (Tiger) colour scheme as a remembrance to the illustrious days of the squadron in the NATO Tiger community. The Starfighter was delivered under the Foreign Military Sales programme to Greece in June 1972. Before that periode the US delivered it under FMS conditions to Spain (as C.8-5 within the Spanish Air Force). In March 1993 the Greek Air Force retired the type. You can still picture this F-104G, its preserved in this colour scheme at the Greek Air Force museum at Tatoi.

This is an exceptional Mi-8 of the Afghan National Army - Air Corps (ANA-AC). It could be a Mi-17 type as it construction number started with 930001. Ot is most probably a former Tajikistan Air Force Mi-8 that was acquired by CIA operatives in 2001 for secretive Special Operations Group (CIA SOG) over the war-torn Afghanistan. 607 was heavily used in Northern Afghanistan but probably not used since late 2004. It was parked at the Kabul platform, but a friendly ANA-AC military was willing to partly remove the cover from its cockpit just for my picture.

Stored at Kabul, in a dusty hangar at the military part of the International Airport, was this Czech built (1977) L-39C Albatros. It was cannibalized in 2005/2006 timeframe to keep two other L-39Cs in the air. 005 never flew again, as the two operational Afghan National Army - Air Corps (ANA-AC) were phased out early 2006. 005 was last noted, still withdrawn from use, at Kabul in 2014.

Then the dual Staf was moved again up north by road to Edessa/Panagitsa and was last seen there mid 2008.

Agusta Bell delivered many AB205s to Greece, several of them started from the beginning of their operational career as a Search and Rescue helicopter. This one was first delivered in June 1976 to the Greek Army and started to fly as ES647. The Greek Air Force took it over by ther mid-80s and converted it to a SAR bird, since that moment this 4391 is operating with 358 MED at Araxos. It is probably still there in 2019. Old Hueys never die!

Recovering from an devastating war, the Afghan National Army - Air Corps was able to send a few surviving L-39C Albatros trainers/light attack aircraft back to Russia for an intensive overhaul. The duo was returned to Afghanistan by an An-22 by late 2005, and was put back into service, only for a few months. The pilots were not able to fly the two Albatros' according to International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) rules, a coalition that tried to rebuild the country. The pilots and Russian instructors didn't speak English so dangerous ATC moments were seen over Kabul during test flights.

An old Mi-8MTV of the Afghan National Army - Air Corps 337th Regiment seen at the platform of homebase Kabul. The Hip shows a sticker of Afghanistan on the nose section. This sticker was remarkably placed on the Mi-8 as it participated in a humanitarian assistance mission over neighbouring country Pakistan. The Kashmir earthquake (7.6M) occurred at on 8 October 2005 in Pakistan Kashmir, Pakhtunkhwa and Jammu provinces. The Afghan government, in deep trouble itself in the fight against the Taliban, managed to send some Mi-8s to the ravaged areas for food/water transports.

Air Million Cargo used this An-32B while it was operating from Kabul (Afghanistan). The all-white, no titles bird was pictured only a few month before a tragic event while it was taxying to the runway of Kabul. Unfortunately, the aircraft crashed near Lashkar Gar (Afghanistan) on 24 April 2006 whilst operating in support of the US Government anti-narcotics bureau.
