The traditional October 26 Greek Navy demonstration in Thessaloniki; which took place on the anniversary of the city’s liberation, was quite impressive.

Citizens and tourists in the country’s second biggest city enjoyed the sea and air manoeuvres orchestrated by the Navy’s vessels and airplanes on the day Thessaloniki celebrated both its liberation and its patron, Saint Dimitrios.

The President of the Greek Republic; Prokopis Pavlopoulos, along with city officials, watched the demonstration on board the historic Averof ship.

Helicopter manoeuvres and Navy special forces crew drops, speed boat pursuits and other demanding exercises were executed with precision by the staff of the Greek Navy.
