Default Maleme attack / Tavronitis bridge related ?

Hi guys

From a Flak Abt 73 album, i see a lot of similarities with photos from other websites :

All yellow points are gliders.

What do you think ? Thx

great picture, it seems to be the Tavronitis bridge area near Maleme you're right and this picture is really interesting because we can clearly see the entire point of view on the landing zone.
