Konya is one of our (NATO's) 4 Forward Operating Bases.
We have dozens of Turkish Air Force members here as permanent members of our 14 nation flying "club"
THe Aussies have been flying with the USAF
at Tinker for their AWACS training and the Turks will fly more at Geilenkirchen to spin up more folks on their Wedgetail. Both have offices in Seattle now as well. I will expect South Korea to do something similar either at TInker, Kadena, or with the JASDF but I haven't heard their plans yet.
Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns,
Capt-AWACS, At NATO we drink more Jager by noon than most multi-national orgs do all day
