November 18, 2022

ATHENS – A pair of Turkish F-16 fighter aircraft entered the Athens Flight Information Region (FIR) on Friday without submitting flight plans and infringed Greek airspace at 13:40, the Hellenic National Defence General Staff said.

The Turkish planes flew over the island of Kastellorizo and then the islet of Ro, one minute later, at a height of 24,000 feet.

They were recognised and intercepted by Greek fighter planes, in accordance with international rules and standard practice.


ATHENS - The search-and-rescue operation to locate a missing F-4E Phantom II fighter jet pilot, Captain Efstathios Tsitlakidis, aged 31, was ended on Wednesday after an analysis of the collected evidence from the crash confirmed his death, a Hellenic Air Force announcement said.
