ICYMI RF-4E farewell in the June issue of Combat Aircraft

When it comes to rare beasts, they don’t come much rarer than the photo-reconnaissance RF-4 Phantom II. The Hellenic Air Force has operated these magnificent, chisel-nosed, RF-4Es since 1978, and on May 5, 2017, it made a final farewell as 348 Mira Taktikis Anagnoriseos (MTA, Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron) ‘Eyes’ joined the history books.

Based at Larissa in northern Greece, in the shadow of Mount Olympus, 110 Pteriga Machis (PM, Combat Wing), 348 MTA was down to just three remaining RF-4Es when Combat Aircraft visited in March, during the squadron’s last weeks of flying, and we feature exclusive coverage in our June issue.
