Turkish Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon

An F-16 Fighting Falcon of the Turkish Air Force (Türk Hava Kuvvetleri) takes off on a sortie from Third Air Force Base Konya, Turkey during Exercise Anatolian Eagle.

 

Royal Air Force Typhoons from XI Squadron, based at RAF Coningsby are taking part in Exercise Anatolian Eagle working alongside the Turkish Air Force at 3rd Air Force Base Konya, Turkey.

 

The two week multi-national complex air exercise provided the opportunity for the RAF to train jointly with the Turkish Air Force aiming to increase interoperability in the event of contingency operations. Also taking part in the exercise are Jordanian, Omani, Qatari and Spanish Air Forces.
