Military Tu-154 once again crossed the Turkish airspace on the way to Syria

19
On Tuesday, the military transport aircraft VKS of Russia Tu-154M flew through the airspace of Turkey, heading for Syria, reports Interfax Post by Western Military Tracking Sites aviation.




According to the information, “a Russian military plane that took off from Sochi, flying over the Black Sea and the eastern part of Turkey, landed in Damascus, the capital of Syria.”

Recall, last Sunday, the same aircraft made a flight through Turkish airspace on the way to Hmeymim air base, located near the Syrian city of Lattakia.

Last time, T-154 rose from the Moscow-based Chkalovsky airfield. Turkish observers then noted that several such flights had been made this year. Earlier, Turkey did not allow Russian military aviation to use its airspace for flights to the SAR.

Meanwhile, long-range VKS bombers, inflicting airstrikes on IG facilities (grouping prohibited in the Russian Federation), as well as heavy military transport planes to fly to Syria continue to use the airspace of Iran and Iraq.

      It seems like that. Interestingly, he (Assad) met with Erdogan and Rouhani or not? Would put on "yes" smile

    The event seems to be small, just flying a single plane back and forth. But this is a plane of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation that flew a NATO member through the country ... I can imagine how many in the USA now gnash their teeth .... the isolation of Russia is cracking at the seams

      Judging by the calm reaction of Turkey - the flight could well have been agreed. But not with the Americans, of course.

        The airspace of each state is sovereign. To fly in this airspace the aircraft of another state, the permission of the first is required. Even regular passenger flights agree (get permission) before each departure and follow strictly according to the approved flight plan (both along the route and in time). hi

        Yes, not “could be agreed upon,” but EXACTLY agreed. Who would have missed it without agreement.

    "... Tu-154 once again ..."
    As I understand it, if from Chkalov to Syria, the Tu-154 will fly 3 times a week, then so many times it will be covered in the "news" section. tongue

    Yes, the news is interesting. It leads to serious reflection.
    True, to the extent of awareness, about cargo and passengers.

    And it will be - "Tu-154 will fly 3 times a week"? Or are these your personal assumptions?
