We expect that the Turkish Air Force will organise spotter days again in 2022 for the Anatolian Eagle exercise. These were last organised in 2019 and in 2021 there was already a small opening with a (international) press day and a spotters day for the Turkish enthusiasts.
This exercise is always characterised by a large participation of aircraft of the Turkish Air Force, very special foreign visitors and an unprecedented hospitality of the Turkish Air Force, which leads to many photographic opportunities.
We will most likely organise a four day trip of which we will spend two days at the airbase.
Note: The Turkish Air Force has not yet officially announced the spotters days, but during the 2021 edition it was already heard that they would like to organise this event. More details will be known early 2022.
In 2022 it would be our sixth visit to this interesting exercise, after having also been there in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2019.
