F-84F of the Greek/Hellenic Air Force
This gallery deals with the Thunderstreaks that once flew with the Greek Air Force. Most pictures were taken when Frank and Hans were invited to visit the Greek AFB Larissa to report on the Best Hit Meet in 1972: after a lot of asking we were allowed to picture some operational aircraft of 345 squadron that were based here at Larissa.
Longest user of all , GREECE kept its Streaks in operational condition up to 1985. The Greek Air Force received many of their first F-84Fs in 1958 (both brandnew and ex-USAF); later they got some surplus aircraft from France, Germany and Holland. In total they had 6 squadrons on strength over the years. The Greek replaced their F-84Fs withF-5s, A-7H Corsairs and F-4 Phantoms. No 345 squadron at Larissa was the last squadron to use the Streak.
