The 2012 edition of our Greece tour (in November of each year) yet again was marked by sunshine. Therefore our fifth tour to the country was very enjoyable again.
Meeting was agreed for 5 AM at the 4Aviation meeting point at Schiphol Airport on Wednesday 7 November 2012. Apparently considered to be rather early to fetch some Hellenic Air Force aircraft in the next days, judging by the sleepy faces of the 5 men. Check-in was smooth and despite the strikes other actions the flight via Vienna went according to the book and we arrived in Athens on schedule. In Vienna a Swiss participant had joined the group and an English colleague joined in Athens. After collecting the rental van we headed for Larissa. After stopping for a couple of preserved F-5s we arrived at our hotel in Larissa early in the evening.
