The Cyprus Problem >

From ACIG.org > Europe & Cold War Database > Cyprus, 1955-1973 > In the 1950s Cyprus was a British crown colony, when the Greek majority of population not only began demanding independence, but also the “Enosis”, the reunion, with Greece. The British ignored these demands, in turn causing an Emergency that lasted for five years. This conflict was barely over when fierce antagonism between the Greeks and Turks was to result in aircraft being used in an indirect conflict which is, actually, very much going on until today. > Oct 26, 2003, 14:13 > http://www.acig.org/artman/publish/article_454.shtml

Europe & Cold War Database > Cyprus, 1974: Turkish Point of View > This story has been prepared on the basis of an account published in the Turkish Magazine “Savunma ve Havacilik”, by retired Korgeneral Hulusi Kaymakli, who served as Commander of the Turkish 2nd Tactical Air Force from 1973-74, and as the Commander of the Air Force HQ Staff 1974-75. The Turkish Air Force’s historical office has provided many of the pictures. It must be stressed that this account has not been written for the purpose of any political aims but solely as a historical military event of some significance. The author has visited most of the places which are accounted for in order to investigate matters himself and has cross-checked all events as closely as possible. > Oct 28, 2003, 04:33 > http://www.acig.org/artman/publish/article_297.shtml

Europe & Cold War Database > Cyprus 1974: Greek Point of View > No other event from the long history of Greek-Turkish incidents is as heatedly discussed like the case of the engagement between EPA F-5As and Turkish F-102s on 21st or 22nd July 1974. The following verbatim was prepared by Nicholas Tselepids on the basis of an article written by Demetrius Stergiou, who interviewed both Ioannis Dinopoulos and Thomas Skampardonis, and published in the Greek magazine “Cockpit”, in May 2001. It describes the “Greek Point of View” regarding this engagement and was provided to ACIG.org with permission from the author. > Oct 28, 2003, 04:36
