  • [01] PASOK's Political Council dealt exclusively on Monday with the issue of education

    Education is the main priority of the main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movment (PASOK) and the top national matter for the survival and participation of Hellenism in the new international environment, PASOK leader George Papandreou stated after a six-hour meeting on Monday of the Movement's Political Council which dealt exclusively on the issue of education.

    A decision for a framework of principles and commitments by PASOK was agreed on the basis of a report presented by Maria Damanaki.

    Papandreou stressed that PASOK is committing itself to finance, "once it comes to power," education with 40 per cent of the funds which Greece will secure from the 4th Community Support Framework (CSF).

    [02] RAF Red Arrows give 'taster' above Acropolis, before upcoming Archangelos Airshow

    A squadron of Britain's Royal Air Force (RAF) Red Arrows that will be participating in the international airshow "Archangelos 2005" arrived in Elefsina on Monday afternoon, giving the public a taster of what they are likely to see on those days by flying in formation above the Acropolis.

    The nine aircraft will give a display on Tuesday afternoon at 17:00 in Faliro, and will return for the Archangelos 2005 airshow in Tanagra on September 16-18.

    The Archangelos Airshow has been organised by the Greek Airforce to honour its patron saint the Archangel Michael for the first time this year, with aircraft from 19 military airforces and 12 aerospace companies taking part, in addition to the Red Arrows.

    The Red Arrows were first built in 1965 and have carried out 3,837 displays in 52 countries. In 2005 alone, they are booked to take part in 75 airshows in Britain and other countries of Europe.

    Their characteristic formation is the 'diamond', which is also their emblem, while they are noted for the professional and are considered an asset to RAF recruitment and defence diplomacy.

    For the past year they have been led by a commander of Greek descent, 34-year-old Dicky Patounas, whose father was born on Rhodes. One of the youngest pilots ever to fly with the Red Arrows, he now has 3,000 hours of flight time under his belt and said he felt honoured by the invitation to take part in the Archangelos Airshow.
