SOLOTURK – Waddington International Airshow – 6 July 2013

Continuing the Waddington International Airshow theme, an undoubted highlight of that show was the display of power and vigour given by Captain S.Yalın Ahbab in the Turkish Air Force ‘SOLOTURK’ F-16C.

The ebullient Captain’s character shows through in his display routine, which includes a roll directly after take-off. This was the sole UK appearance by SOLOTURK, a young team which began displaying in 2010. It is operated by 141st Squadron Command from the 4th Main Jet Base Command, Ankara-Akinci, and operates a stunningly-schemed ‘Viper’ plus a spare jet with minor detailing. Hopefully the team will visit the UK more frequently in the future.
