A Greek F-4 Phantom pilot participating in a routine exercise in Samos, was asked to move away by the Turkish Air force, as they claimed the Greek fighter jet was “flying over Turkish airspace.”

When the Turkish operators asked the Greek fighter aircraft to identify themselves, the Greek pilot responded, “I am Charon (carrier of the souls of death in Greek mythology) and I am coming.”

In most cases Greek pilots ignore these calls, however this fighter pilot felt the need to express his frustration at the constant and unreasonable claims made by Turkey, and following the death of his colleague Giorgos Baltadoros, who passed away after his plane intercepted a Turkish jet in April in the Aegean.  See below
