This is a small army airfield situated northeast of Alexandria.
One north-south runway and a ramp with a large hangar in the southwest corner is all there is. The gate is to the southwest of the ramp and foliage and buildings obstruct a clear view from that side.
Easiest way to get here is to take the number 4 road out of Alexandria (Αλεξάνδρεια) to Koufalia (Κουφάλια) and Thessaloniki. This is not the coastal highway but the old through road. Drive on for about 4 km and the airfield will be on your left nestled against the road.
Just after passing the gate, with a preserved OH-13 behind it, the helicopters and U-17 will appear on the ramp. If you drive a bit slower you will be able to read the choppers by eye sight.
After the airfield perimeter ends, you will have to make a left into an unpaved farmland track. This runs parallel to the runway and fence which is lined by bushes on the inside. Drive on a bit until you can cross an irrigation canal on your right hand side. You will be a bit higher now and are able to look into the hangars as well, provided they are open obviously. There were three stored Bell OH-13, but most seem to have disappeared, they were on the far north side of the ramp, straight ahead from spot 2. One should still be there.
