Around the Airport
On the Highway E65 take the exit towards Tripolis. After leaving the highway, do not follow the signs to Tripolis but follow the small road which runs along the highway to the north. After a small turn you will cross the highway overhead via a bridge. After the bridge take the second road to the right. If you take the first left, you will position yourself onto the road along the south side of the base. There is a white house under construction which has a good view onto the apron and the preserved aircraft, but also the east runway if used.
When you continue onto the beforementioned road, you will cross the runway. This spot is slightly elevated thus giving a nice view onto the apron and the east taxiway.
If you continue onto the beforementioned road, you will end at the main gate. Here you will find the gate guard Freedom Fighter.
