Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:


    F14???? thats wrong, plobly means F4s or F5s, any aviation type know what these two very friendy and jovial neighbours fly as they wave to each other with big smiles as they twiddle their handlebar mustaches??
  2. F-16's surely?
  3. Greek radio says F16
  4. Greek F16 and Turkish F4.



    Initial reports suggest a Greek F16 and possibly an F4. Both use F16s and both play 'chicken' with each other quite often.
  5. I hope whoever took the photos above did not end up in jail??

    Remember the Plane spotters.
  6. Well the Greeks never liked their aircraft being photographed and suppose airborne spotters are worse.
  7. Being reported it was a pair of F16's. One from each side. Turk has been rescued, Greek reported as killed.
  8. So, no gyros from papa joe's tonight.... bummer, will have to be a kebab!
  9. I think this is a case of taking Eurovision Song Contest rivalry too far.
  10. Both use F16's and both have used F4's, I think the Greeks retired theirs but the Turks updated some of theirs with Israeli help. Neither has ever used F14's. Fact that only 'pilots' are mentioned would suggest F16's.
  11. Thats what happens if you play chicken at 20000ft
