The Air Force General Staff confirmed that communication was lost with the aircraft.

On Thursday, April 12, communications with the M12.15-2000 aircraft, nine miles northeast of Skyros, were lost on 5. Searching for it
- said in a statement.

        Yes, she. We will not say that someone’s hand, If there was no hand as such. already long ago pilots complained about the quality of these Mirages. upgraded them several times. and they ... not the best we have in service. if only the pilot was alive ... and this flying rubbish, it is high time to start re-melting. but if the Turks hadn’t flown to us so often, then it would be less risky to lose an airplane and a pilot ... I’m talking about Turkey’s arm now. although they also lost planes with us. but no one called them here ... and our pilots fly over their land.

          Judging by the fact that on October 8, 1996, a Greek Mirage 2000 shot down a Turkish F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter in an aerial battle over the Aegean Sea, you really have oldies, although Greece received the last Mirage -2000 in 2007, so most likely you have and Mirage-2000-5 generation 4+ and this is just an old glider, the filling is better, the informatics in the cockpit from Rafal, the engine is more powerful, and the wing area is increased, with F-16 The block of the latest series is drawn on equal footing

            Yes, exactly like that, they received it the last 10 years ago, but I have a friend. They have an attitude to the aircraft service, I said that ... our pilots draw everything they can out of them, and to put it mildly, they do not meet the requirements of the pilots. and our pilots are good. the best in NATO is our pilot and his training. By the way, recently it was the last time again Greek recognized. Well, the pilots are really good. squeeze everything out of them .. literally with their tail on the sea they creep when they fly. at least F-16 at least Mirage at least Phantom. any plane is always at the limit of possibilities exploited.

            F16 - a light fighter. M2000 - no. "Striving on an equal footing" is not entirely correct. It's like a moment and drying.

            and who is asking us? we belong to the military bloc, from which we must purchase weapons. but there is no choice. rafal. typhoon. grippen and f-16 ... mostly light fighters. K. Karamanlis won when he wanted to buy it. it started like this, they drove homeless people and agents from all over Europe, shot a kid in Athens on Exarchia Square, they didn’t arrange a 15-year-old and a little color revolution. when I went to the street for two months, all these activists, anarchists and others like them were not ours ... many are clearly agents of the special services of all stripes. from the Arabs ending with the Slavs (Poles, Bulgarians). and then the Trotskyist and the cretin came to power. the general laughing stock of the son of Papandreou ... and after him one trash at the helm, who will buy? who has eggs there (not Easter)? only among the far right .. they licked for a long time on rapprochement with Russia, but it’s they who are not allowed to take power, otherwise these will be bought ... and they will start to turn the Shura-Mura with Russians. and all the others to turn onto a threaded bolt.

But yes, I didn’t get in touch with the Bulgarians, either with the Turks. yes with almost everyone else. our people fully support Russia. and politicians. These are political girls of not very heavy behavior. paid and brought to themselves. and we are satisfied with weapons from Russia and the USSR. the same Cornets and Bassoons, T-80, BMP-3 tanks in Cyprus, S-300, TOR, Buk, Osa, Zu-23, there is even a gunner, I also had AKM and PC and Fagoty and RPG-8 a fly, disposable ... the truth this shooter came to us from Germany. as a gift, but the bobiks were. BMP-1, which almost all were killed for a long time .. there are no spare parts for repairs ... are a bunch of disassembled. in Thessaloniki are. but what else in working order works great. no planes, yes ... with this strained came out. and the Bison are, for example, the Urals are running. somewhere else BMP -1 on the islands there is a 73 mm Thunder cannon. and we want planes, but they don’t let them buy ... you see what they are doing? 5 to 6 mercenaries will come immediately and that’s all ... aviation will not be needed here simply. and it won’t help. how Syria will be torn to pieces. but planes want both Mig and Su ...

                        Yes, they are not the first time to forget about it. in two world wars they went against Russia. and now they have joined NATO. They are unreliable partners. you be careful with them. otherwise they will run to you again with their hands up ... know who you regret. and whom you sympathize with. By the way, they sell their weapons (an exact copy of the Soviet technologically) they sell as the original ... and they delivered a lot to them .. without analysis.

        Spring aggravation attacked Western aircraft. So they fall, and fall, like autumn leaves from trees.
        And as for the pilot, let's hope that everything is in order with him.

      Some time ago, the Greeks shot down Anka there (UAV which). The Turks protested.
      Perhaps the answer.

      Perhaps he fell. This is a controversial zone - which Turkey considers its own, and Greece its own. They have constant skirmishes there, demonstration battles, and sometimes what UAVs they bring down.

        The Turks consider almost all the Balkans, Crimea, the Caucasus to be their territory, and God knows what, so give everything to them. And in our opinion let them go where they came from, to their historical homeland- In Mongolia

      The Greek pilot, who catapulted from a military aircraft that fell into the sea today, died. The catastrophe itself is associated with the dangerous maneuvering of the Turkish Air Force, performing interception. This is far from the first incident of this kind between the two "peacefully conflicting" (after S. Kipra) countries, but right now Russia, which has powerful channels of informal communication with both countries, can act as an intermediary in resolving the confrontation, which will only intensify after today's tragedy .
      It is funny that both Turkey and Greece are members of NATO.
