We have received good news! For the first time since 2016, the Turkish Air Force is once again organising spotters days for the beautiful Anatolian Eagle exercise at Konya airbase. And of course we are there.
Participants are (status at the end of May 2019):
Italy – 3x AMX
Jordan – 3x F-16
NATO – 1x E-3
Pakistan – 6x JF17
Qatar – 1x C-17, 1x C-130
Turkey – C-130, KC-135, E-7, F-4, F-16, CN235 and AS532 (many aircraft)
United States – 6x F-15E
The spotter days will take place on Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 June 2019. As the tour is only in a few weeks, we will offer this trip only on a “Land-Only” basis. That means you have to buy your own ticket. But of course, we can offer support with that.
Check our website for reports of previous trips to Anatolian Eagle in Konya in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
If you sign up for this tour you will receive a form that you must complete and send to the Military Attache of the Turkish embassy of your own country. Without this form you will not be admitted to the base. We have asked about the email addresses for non-Dutch embassies.
