When the Turks announced two spotter days for exercise Anatolian Eagle at Konya Airbase, there was big excitement among the aviation enthusiasts. Although the announcement came fairly last minute, no less than 40 enthusiasts joined us on our trip to Turkey.
On Monday 24 June 2019, most made their way to Konya. Some participants had arrived a bit earlier, a couple took a night flight. We all went to our regular hotel in the centre of town. After check-in, there was still time to enjoy a nice meal in town.
