A Falcon 20 (reg. G-FFRA – callsign ZODIAC05) of Draken Europe took off a short while ago from the Araxos base in the Peloponnese. The aircraft is now orbiting over central Greece.
Draken Europe is a provider of aircraft for contract air services including military and defense industry customers. The private company – which previously operated as Cobham Aviation Services – uses a fleet of uniquely-adapted Dassault Falcon 20 business jets to provide operational readiness training to military customers. Core to this is the aircraft’s carriage of advanced electronic warfare and electronic attack equipment.
In this case, the aircraft is operating in support of Araxos-based fighters participating in the NATO Tiger meet 2022 exercise.
