Olympic Airways Aircraft Harassed

En Kripto blog reports that yesterday an Olympic Airways flight from Athens to Rhodes Island received was harassed by messages from a Turkish Navy warship. As the aircraft was on nearing its final approach it received two messages from the Turkish Frigate Gokceada which was in the wider area but within Turkish territorial waters. This happened at 10:15

The Turkish warship referred to the Olympic Airways aircraft as an unknown aircraft flying in a “hostile” fashion and ordered the aircraft to leave the area. An hour later, at 11:18, the Turkish warship made 3 more similar calls but there were no aircraft in the area at the time.
