237. Prinos Airfield

13/05/2016

These photos are some of the most exciting so far this year, as they show the work that’s being done to prepare the airfield on Thassos island. This is the exact spot that Grandad landed 100 years ago, and it’s beginning to look very likely that we’ll be able to do the same, 100 years later.

Is this exciting? You betcha!

Some surface water at present, but I’m sure it will be fine by the time it’s levelled and – hopefully – a grass or other surface on it.

And here's the digger that's been doing the work.

Check out the Kavala airshow Facebook page, where we get an honourable mention. if you can possibly make it for that weekend, it will be a very special event on both sides of the water, and lots of sun and beaches for those who aren’t into aeroplanes.
