On April 12, 2018, a Hellenic Air Force Mirage 2000-5 fighter jet that was heading for landing after a mission in the Aegean Sea, crashed into the sea, 9 NM north of Skyros Island. The pilot who did not survive the crash has fallen for faith and homeland at the time of duty.

“As the Commander of the NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Greece I would like to express on behalf of all NRDC-GR personnel my deepest condolences to the family as well as to the Hellenic Air Force family for this tragic loss. It is not a loss only for Greece and the Hellenic Air Force but also for the whole NATO family”.
