Nice one!!! all i saw was Civvies when i was there and when we departed it was the evening that we went to war in Afhganistan, and the little old northern lady we were talking too whilst waiting to board said "Dont let Bin Laden" get you!!. I can tell you i was never a nervous flyer until that night! lol. I dont want to be picky but its Paphos airport not Pathos.

Thanks for posting always nice to see mil movements around Europe and further afield.

Are the ex-RAF Shackleton AEW.2s still there? The last pix I saw showed them to be in a sorry state.

I can comfrim that the 2 shacks have been moved to the seaward end of Paphos Airport,and are still there, this took place before the redevopment of the airport.
