C-47 Walkaround

Hi everyone! I had the chance to spend some time near HAF's C-47, s/n KK156. This was the last flying HAF C-47, meticulously maintained, til its last flight that took place sometime around 2010, or even before... Since then, it resides in 114CW,[...]

Historic Planes of the Hellenic Air Force

Hi everyone! Here are some pics of Hellenic Air Force bird types that are not operational any more. These birds reside in the 114CW, so, understandably, most of them are types that once were operational in the Base. Keeping these planes in good [...]

A (Reluctantly) Productive 2020

There is only one surviving Heinkel 219 Uhu

It was brought to the Garrison Museum in Aalborg, where some attempt was initiated to salvage the parts. Sadly the focus was on iron, and to avoid that rusting further the parts was kept "dry". Rather quickly the parts on display on the muse[...]
