Anatolianeagle.org is a website run by a commercial organisation who organizes accomodation in Konya and transportation to and from the airbase. If you don't want to arrange everything yourself this is an alternative. They have some contacts with the military

I received also an email from them stating that the 2016 participants are: Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Italy, RAF, Germany and NATO. Lets's see what is true.

Probably no Phabulous Phantoms anymore.... :cry: :cry:

Spottersdays Anatolian Eagle 2016/1 announced and procedure given. It seems you must have written media articles (magazine, website a.o.) to get accreditation.
ANATOLIAN EAGLE 2016/1 NOTICE FOR SPOTTERS

1. Turkish Air Force have organized Anatolian Eagle Training with the participation of national and international units since 2001 and this year the training will be performed between 30 May – 10 June 2016. Anatolian Eagle Training will be open for spotters on 8-9-10 June 2016.

2. Spotters who would like to follow the training must deliver their requests covering information below to the Turkish Military Attache’s Office in their countries.

- Name/Surname
- Date of Birth
- Nationality
- Passport Number
- Institution
- Profession/Position
- E-mail address
- Reference Products (Articles, books, etc.)

Process will be finalized with a confirmation mail to be sent to the spotter.

3. Spotters who would like to gather information regarding the organization can visit http://www.anadolukartali.tsk.tr website.

4. It is important that applications are made until 25 April 2016 so that applications and requests are processed accordingly.

5. A separate notice will be published for the press members to follow the event. Please send e-mails to basin@hvkk.tsk.tr account for your questions and requests.
Last years edition (2015) the third spotterday (friday) was cancelled. Let's hope this edition this is not done as the last friday, although no missions are flown, brings many transport to Konya.

Event coincides with Leeuwarden AirShow.

So, does anyone have some information about :

A. If the exercise will actually go ahead (due to the current security situation in Turkey)?
B. What units / foreign participants are planning to show up?

There is an official website for the exercise (also in English), but it's not really well maintained and I can't find a clear answer to the above questions myself.

Anyone with more info??

Regards,

Paul

Any "new" news about Anatolian Eagle?
I read on FB about participation of the Netherlands and Italy. Except those two countries, also Pakistan and Saudi Arabia with Eurofighters or Tornados.
Can someone confirm this?

Does this mean that you do not trust your source?

I didn't hear it directly from an official source, so caution is required.

Check. Last thing I heard is that they were preparing 6 Tornado's for participation. This info is over 2 months old though, so cannot validate the current status.
