    Default GREECE - Iraklion

    Hi all, thought I'd post some pics taken on my recent holiday to Crete. The first photo isn't great, but shows the communication masts at what was the US Air Force operated Iraklion Air Station, located at Gouves. The rest are pics taken of the Hellenic Air Force base which is right next to Iraklion Airport. Unfortunately, there were no aircraft on view, except for the gate guard and the SAR Huey. All these photos were taken either from a coach, or from the plane!

    Managed to squeeze in a quick visit to the old USAF Iraklion Air Station on my recent holiday to Crete, thanks to an obliging taxi driver, and the fact that Cretaquarium is on part of the site, enabling me to convince my wife to go in the first place!

    Another unknown building. The badge for the 7276th Communications Squadron is unfortunately hidden behind the bush. The bottom pic is the best shot I could get of it.
