This information is not solid, but looks likely that this is the aircraft that was lost on June 2, 2003. It is the only HAF block 30 that cannot be accounted for after 2003 by spotters on Scramble's web site. Further confirmation is required. Here are the details regarding this mishap. Possible bird ingested in the engine, but certainly was an issue with the engine. Pilot, Captain Pliatsikas Theodoros jettisoned the drop tanks and attempted to make it to a runway but fell short three nautical miles from the base near Volos. An Air Force rescue helicopter picked up the Captain after his safe ejection. After a short stay in an Air Force hospital, he was released.
