There are no silver/grey German C-160’s anymore. Maybe a French Transall? Turkish is highly unlikely

A grey C160 departed PFO this morning at 08:00 and still unidentified! Any ID would be much appreciated.

Many thanks for the help so far.
Another C160 of FAF departed Paphos this morning at 10:15 CYP time. Couldn't see the code, any ideas anyone?

Returned with a recorded ATA of 15.54

Keep 'em peeled though, a GAF C.160 should have arrived in the early hours (in the pitch black at daft o'clock) - possibly 50+66.

A German C160 has just departed 07:00 CYP time and heading west.
I've only got mobile with PF and FR24 (can't get ADSBexchange to work!) any help is always appreciated.

Just returned home to UK from Paphos. No ID on the C-160`s but did note a GAF A400 on app over Mandria 30th Sept around 1500hrs.
I have noted quit a few GAF transports on prev visits , what is the interest in Paphos are they just passing thru?

Sorry not able to assist with the A400 on the 30th Sept - I was away on my travels

Generally PFO is used as a staging post, although sometimes aircraft do get based for a series of flights in the "general area".

I assume the C160 departing PFO at 07:00 today was the same one, being F216/GT. Also noted overhead PFO at 09:30 a C130 probably out of Akrotiri. Any help much appreciated.
