Delta Charters Between Turkey and Norway?

Sun Nov 11, 2018 10:27 am

Hi, this is my first time posting and I'm not sure if this is really the right place, but I'll give it a try.

I spotted Delta flight DL8956 flying Trondheim-Sirnak TRD-NKT. In recent days it has been flying Atlanta-Sirnak, Sirnak-Trondheim and now probably back to Atlanta from Trondheim. I guess that the flight number implies that it is a charter of some sort, but I don't know.
My question is, what kind of charters would this be? Military or something else? Keep in mind that NATO has held exercises in Norway recently, although that would't explain the Sirnak leg. I searched on Google a bit and saw that similar flights have been carried out in the last month or so.

Anyone who can shed some light on this is greatly appreciated.
