Hellenic Air Force F-4E Phantom

Greece and Turkey are the last operators in Europe of this large twin-engine fighter jet which was originally developed as a carrier-borne fighter for the US Navy. Greece operates two versions of the F-4, the F-4E (AUP) - Avionic Update Programme - which is used for both the air-to-air, air-to-ground roles and the RF-4E which is used for tactical reconnaissance but will be retired from service in May this year. The aircraft visiting the 2017 Air Tattoo will be the F-4E from 117 Combat Wing, Andravida Air Base.
