**WARNING** does contain the odd Military Serial, if easily scared, look away now ;)

Paphos... in respect to other sun spots around the med it is "sleepy hollow" but it does get the odd gem or three. Yes more can be seen elsewhere and what you do see can always be gained easier elsewhere. However if you are after sometime with the family with the odd look at an aircraft as it arrives/departs it is just right.
Mostly British IT flights with the odd other European flights thrown in for good measure, a daily S7 flight and an almost daily series of FV flights. Just need to use a decent airport time table (https://www.hermesairports.com/flight-i ... departures) and plan what you need to see. Of course Biz-jets will always be hit or miss as will military flights and the odd delivery flight
If you are into over flights the steady stream from the the West towards Tel Aviv (LLBG/TLV) should keep you happy (Electronic assistance required) depending on your requirements of course.

A steady 10 days or so relaxing and soaking up the sun found the following.

Love Paphos- great for walk's if you like to walk- not a real busy airport but you get a few nice ones. Half decent log there- did not know about the Noratlas in Nicosia. :unsure: Off to Ayia Napa in August for 10 days for my nieces wedding- hopefully get a half decent log from there. :)

Bob,

The Noratlas is an "easy grab" just the drive (from PFO) to Nicosia to cope with

Pictures from my visit for the Noratlas are at https://www.flickr.com/photos/htf2wfd/a ... 8824743461
