  9. a few shots taken of airfields when I flew jump seat in to airfields in the 1980s.... Izmir-Cigli - 23/1/0/1987 The mil ramp is on the right side. The forground is the T-37 ramp, with the large visitors and T-33 ramp and hangar beyond, then further there is the T-38 ramp, on which there were two Turkish S-2s :). We landed took a .... right turn .....and taxied back along the taxiway that you can, crossing to the terminal. While photography was clearly tricky there was a lots to see, including 4 visiting F-5s by the T-33 hangar. Izmir-Cigli - 23/10/1987 A better view of the T-37s Larissa, Greece - Summer 1982 (not sure the date as I had two trips) This was as we touched down. Lots of luvverly F-84s! Larissa, Greece - Summer 1982 a photoshopped image because there was a cockpit window frame in the middle! Note the RF-84Fs - flying on one occasion Larissa, Greece - Summer 1982 And this is where we parked. :). There was also an AB205 SAR on the (serial 4397) on both visits that I made here. The entrance to this "civil" pan was just behind the white Dak. I'd spend the turn around walking around our aircraft and eyeing the view! Martin
