Two Greek F-16 pilots have became the latest sensation after a video showing their insane skills ripping through the skies has gone viral with over 100,000 views on twitter to date.
"Vipers hugging the deck and ripping it up, or as the Greeks would say, cutting the grass." writes one twitter user.
"Fucking hell. Looks like it's carrying AAMs too." he adds
The enthusiasm over the skills of Greek pilots is not unjustified given they are considered among the best pilots in the world and regularly come on top in international competitions.
In 2018, Greece’s elite pilots had a fantastic presentation at the Mirage 2000-5 in Albacete, Spain, and were named the best pilots in NATO.
Greek pilots also took this title in 2017 and in particular, the award for “Best Warrior of the World” was again won by a Greek pilot, as it has been over the last few years.
During that competition, 331 squadrons undertook missions consistent with the mission on both National and NATO levels to familiarise and co-operate all personnel in accordance with its standards and procedures and Greek pilots proved to be world leading.
The crew from the Greek Mirages were voted Best Warriors by the Fighter Operators who took part in the TLP 2018-3 in NATO.
