The 450 Squadron of the republic.
Yes, it might get a little hectic.

Thanks for that post.

These things regularly fly over our house - Paphos to Larnaca or vice versa I suspect - and I've always wondered what their story was.

One day, it must have been some sort of big parade, I saw 7 or them in (loose) formation go over. :wink:

I used to play the video game “Hind” in the mid to late 90s…

I had no idea that one day I’d see them for real!

Being very close to the Lakatamia airbase, we see them flying all the time.

With no idea I would one day be involved in the procurement of AugustaWestland Apaches for the (much hated I'm sure) RAF.
