(Former) Turkish Government Gulfstream used as drugs transport

Post by michel N »

Turkish Gulfstream TC-GVA (ex TC-ATA) was being checked at Fortaleza airport by the Brazilian police/customs. On board they found 1300 kilos of cocaine. Crew and passengers arrested.
Quite a change of usage, from high ranking politicians to millions worth of cocaine.

TC-GVA is still operating for the Turkish government, if I make no mistake ...

The Scramble DB does not say it was still with the TK-Gov.
It says it was last noted with the TK-Gov in Apr16

Actually, the DB does say just that. In the status column is says 'Active', not 'To Civil'....
Anyway, answer was given above.
By the way, for those interested, planned routing of TC-GVA was Fortaleze - Lisbon - Brussels.

That is not what the DB says. It is a last noted DB
It only says on Apr16 it was noted as active, it does not say active on Aug21
