This Helldiver is
displayed inside the big hangar which serves as main exhibition hall.
Unfortunately the bad lighting and the position of the aircraft makes it
impossible to take pictures from a greater distance. This particular
aircraft was part of a number delivered from U.S. Navy stocks to
Greece in 1949, and helped defeat the communist forces and thus end the
4-year civil war. It is one of the very few Helldivers existing
today anywhere in the world, and one of two in the whole of Europe, (the other
one is in France).
