Which would mean Canadakaai quay 532 in the righthand corner of the tri-junction.

Correct they created a new compound compared to previous deployments.
This compound is out of sight and you are not able to see any chopper from outside or otherside of the harbour.
Also when they will fly away it is quit far to observe an take decent pictures !
Greetings,

Noted on ADSB yesterday, so Sunday the 3rd were a couple of Blackhawks, flying from Volos to Kavala, and from there on further into Bulgaria and most likely to Constanta/Romania.
AE51AC showing as 1120360 in the callsignbox
AE51BD showing as R20389
AE51CC not showing any details, should/ could be 11-20416
AE5391 showing as 0506 in the callsignbox, so could be HH60M 1x-20506.
