According to one of the publications, a total of 70 F-16 fighters from the 111th fighter wing were based at the affected airfield. It is not known how many of them will be transferred.
Nea Anchialos is located about 20 kilometers from the Greek city of Volos. Residents of nearby settlements are being evacuated, and windows have been shattered by explosions in some houses.
The detonation at the warehouse came against the backdrop of large-scale forest fires in Greece, which claimed the lives of at least five people. Among the dead is the crew of the firefighting plane that crashed on July 25.
