Sunrise at Lehrgeschwader 2's Base in Greece

May 1941, sunrise at 7.(Fern)Staffel / Lehrgeschwader 2's base in Greece. Operations have already begun in spite of the twilight; note the three Junkers Ju 52s taking off in the background. The ground crews must have had a very early start to have these aircraft ready for a dawn takeoff. In the foreground is a Messerschmitt Bf 110 reconnaissance aircraft of 7.(F)/LG 2.
