|The two photos below are reconnaissance photos taken on the 26th May, they are from file AIR 40/1402 in the National Archives in Kew. There is another photo in the file from 23 May and a comparison shows the build up of aircraft on the ground at Maleme. |
The second of the two photos is a blow up of the southern corner of the airfield. Some of them will be glidrs while others will be JU52 transports. Although they do not show well in this reproduction, there are also some in the river valley to the west of the airfield.
