Larissa CAOC from wikileaks
http://www.wikileaks.ch/cable/2009/07/09ATHENS1265.html, 17 July 2009 Greeks on Larissa CAOC Command
¶3. (C) Our DAO has had a series of conversations with his GoG counterparts on the Larissa CAOC flag structure. The GoG expressed some chagrin at how the changes developed. They aver that the US proposed a changed flag structure for Larissa two days before the plan was decided at NATO, pulling the proposed US deputy commander in favor of a Turkish deputy, which the GoG did not veto "under duress." As a result, in Larissa both the commander and deputy will now rotate between Greek and Turk, always having a Turk in some command role. This is not "balanced" in Component Command Air (CC Air) Izmir where the commander is US but the deputy rotates between Turk and third country. It is only at Chief of Staff level where a Greek is in the normal rotation, leaving six months per year when no Greek is in any command role in Izmir. This is being played in the press as a big loss to the GoG, which is trying to redress in part by placing Greek officers elsewhere. With the above in mind, as we counsel the Greeks and Turks on preparing for a Turkish command role in Larissa, we should think creatively about how to offer the Greeks additional visibility elsewhere in the region. One option might be adding Greek Colonels to RC South (Naples) or to SHAPE. In addition, we must encourage the GAF and TUAF to meet, and perhaps exchange officers in preparation for the CAOC change. Finally, we should press the respective air force commanders to meet, once we are able to point to a hiatus in over flights of Greek-inhabited islands by the TUAF.

JFC Naples moved from Bangoli to Lago Patria. They've been covering this on JFC's web pages for months.
The above uncredited comment is correct. There were a number of videos of the closing ceremony (in Italian) on the net at the time. http://www.jfcnaples.nato.int/page1134535.aspx?d=2012-12 is an official statement by JFC. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:18, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

I think the operational word is "moving" to Lago Patria. The base was officially opened in Dec 2012, so its going to awhile before the base actually becomes fully operational. Narum Sin (talk) 12:45, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
