Anatolian Eagle ?? May/June =>?? May/June 2023
With the modernization of infrastructure, weapons and training that began in the early 1980s, the Turkish Air Force (TAF) realized the philosophy that “no matter how modern the weapons are, men use them.”
As the TAF gained experience during internal security operations and the wars in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo, it was decided that the TAF had reached a level of performance where it could host other countries’ air forces for exercises and give them training.
The Anatolian Eagle exercises would be similar to the US Red Flag exercise at Nellis Air Force Base.
The TAF first sent observers to Red Flag in 1983 and participated for the first time in 1997 with six F-16s and 57 personnel. Two “Flag” type exercises were held in 1998 called Anatolian Flag at Incirlik Air Base.
The first exercise, Anatolian Eagle 01, was held by TAF Operations Command on June 18-29, 2001. Besides Turkey, US and Israeli air forces also participated.
After the alleged coup attempt in 2016, no Anatolian Eagle exercises were held in 2017 and 2018, but they returned in 2019.
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic meant another year without Anatilian Eagle, but the exercise has been held again since 2021.
