I realize F-4 discussion is close to sin on this board, but does anyone have any info on the Greek Peace Icarus 2000 upgrade program? I haven't heard anything in a good while.
I have no clue.
Where is fantasma?
I thought I read a report in AFM recently that the project has stalled due to software bugs and things like that. After that the issue just went off the radar screens.
Perhaps you could write to the editor:
Can you give us an update on the issue?
Discussing Phantoms is not a sin on this board, I guess, but bringing them up every single day IS.
Anyway, haven't we discussed Peace icarus some months ago? Look in the archive.

Both pix by EADS, note the camera that is mounted instead of the M-61.
Since the Aircombat forum is 'moving' at the moment ,I'll post it here...
PI2000 F-4E s/n '01523' " Princess of Andravida" is about to be formaly accepted in PA service after the last test flights in Andravida are concluded . This will mark the start of training for the first 6 crews , as 15 other F-4E's have already been upgraded to the PI2000 standard ( which includes the SLEP program as well...)
It is excpected that 338 Mira will be declared operational in the type in the fall , while 339 Mira will follow by the end of the year.

PS: Here is a pic of the WSO seat of the upgraded Peace Icarus 2000 F-4E "01523"
( The photo is courtesy of 338 Mira and was published by Kostas Dimitropoulos in this month's Modeltime magazine ).
And this link to the EADS site , I think you'll find it interesting ( and hopefully PhantomII , you'll stay there for a while and won't post any more F-4 threads here... }> )
anyone got a cockpit pictures of the Israeli/Turkish F-4 terminator upgrade?
I think I am going to faint. Finally, a cockpit picture of an upgraded F-4! I've waited so long for that. Then, you give me a link to a most excellent video that shows all you non believers that the F-4 is still alive and kicking. I wish I could get to Europe in time to see an F-4 at a big air show. Thanks a lot fantasma. I can't thank you enough.
