Air force jets from Israel and Italy have joined Greek planes in a low-altitude flyover in central Athens, as part of an 11-day international military exercise based in southern Greece.
Five planes taking part in the exercises looped around the ancient Acropolis, taking many city residents and tourists by surprise. One Israeli and one Italian jet joined three Greek fighters in the flyover.
The exercise, which also includes forces from The United States and the United Arab Emirates, ends April 6.
