It's agood idea but we have to search because in Sallonka there were the following French Escadrilles :
501, 502 (no Spad's), 503 (no Spad's), 506, 522 (no Spad's), 523, 524 (no Spad's) ;
At Mikra : 510 (no Spad's) and also 524 ;
At "Camp Alladini" : 504 (no Spad's), 505 (no Spad's), 507, 523 ;
At "Camp de Sédès" : 521 (no Spad's) and 525 (no Spad's).

Cheers,
Jicehem

I think Fonck was a visitor to this Escadrille. But I don't remember Fonck went to Greece at a time...

Iva seems to be a Quality controller for all kits you are making,so that's why they are so great...
Hope to see more Spad photos soon

There is the possibility this photo shows Fonck as guest of the Escadrille 77... in France.
I'm searching for the possible date and location.

Good- thank you :) Every info about Fonck and his plane is welcome. Is the plane preserved in Paris his original? It look like that.
