Spotting At Incerlik AFB, Turkey

Sat Feb 22, 2003 5:13 pm

Hello anyone,

Need help - has anyone been here or know if photography of military aircraft is possible? I mean not formally (obviously they won't give tours at this time) - but by just being legally around the perimeter of the base.

I see on BBC and CNN cameras that long range views are possible i think?

But if anyone has ever passed through here - let me know - and THANKS in advance.

I wouldn't risk it without official permission.
Those guys in Greece last year got off easily with just a suspended sentence, Turkey still has the death penalty for espionage and seeing that they're quite tense right now given their neighbours in Iraq I think they won't allow an appeal...

I agree. With the massive U.S. military buildup taking place, now is not the time to be carrying a camera around and watching military operations.

Turkey is very strict about their airfields, and as said by others "if you dont mind spending time in a turkish prison" they WILL arrest and detain you.
