      Well, there would be a civilian plane. But the board is military, with the military on board. I mean, whatever you say, but Turkey, Russia, such as an ally, only type in words. Not only that, but also a NATO country. So, I will not grieve much. I remember better both the Russian downed plane and the support of outright terrorists in Syria, and Libya, where no one asked them to meddle and so on.

    the disaster occurred at an altitude of 2 thousand 200 meters. The plane crashed, crashing into Mount Artos. At 22:32 the crew last contacted the dispatchers, the pilots reported that they were on their way to the base. Around 22:45, the plane disappeared from the radar, communication with the pilots was interrupted.

    Cessna Citation 550 II USA administrative plane 2
    Gulfstream 550 US administrative aircraft 1
    Beechcraft King Air 350 US administrative aircraft

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_737_AEW%26C:
    Four Boeing 737 DRLOs of the world Eagle aircraft, together with ground support systems were ordered by the Turkish Air Force, with the possibility for two more. The Turkish aerospace industry (THAI) is the main subcontractor for Mira Eagle parts manufacturing, aircraft modifications, assembly and testing. Another Turkish subcontractor, Havelsan, is responsible for system analysis and software support besides supplying the ground handling segment, which will be located in Konya, Turkey. [20] HAVELSAN Turkey is the only foreign company licensed by the US government to obtain critical source codes. [21]
    World Eagle 1 is modified and tested by Boeing Integrated Defense Systems in Seattle, Washington, USA. Mir Eagle 2, 3 and 4 will be modified and tested at Tai facilities in Ankara, Turkey, involving Boeing and a number of Turkish companies. In 2006, four Mirny Eagle aircraft were slated for 2008. [22] in September 2007, Boeing made its first test flight from Turkey AWACS 737. [23] On June 4, 2008, it was announced that the Turkish aerospace industry has completed modifications for the World Eagle 2, the Second 737 AWACS aircraft at Thai facilities in Turkey. The completion of the audit and the flight mission system took place in the third quarter of 2008. [24] in 2013, Israel responded to American pressure and supplied electronic warfare equipment to Turkish aircraft. [25] The first peaceful Eagle aircraft, named Kuzey (meaning "North"), was officially accepted into the Turkish Air Force stock on February 21, 2014. [26] [ 27] [28] [29] the remaining three aircraft will be named Guney (South), Dogu (East) and Batı (West). [29] the fourth and final Mirny Eagle aircraft was delivered in December 2015.
    It seems that the latest intelligence officer working in the USA and in space has crashed. hi I apologize for the gibberish, I myself do not understand well. hi

    Flew away, that's only whose fault? Interestingly, the data collected exclusively for himself or for one of the NATO members, too? Understand the reason and announce.

    Considering the ongoing artillery firefights between Azerbaijan and Armenia, and the fact that the Van province is 80 km from Armenia, I think the flight was not training, but quite a practical combat range of missions.
    However, the Turks should nevertheless remember that they are not the Ottoman Empire of the 16th century in order to have success in such military geography and state and political undertakings: from Libya and Cyrenaica to Transcaucasia and Turkestan, including the Xinjiang Uyghur District of China.
    Rather, it will come true "you will chase two / three / four hares ..."
    Moreover, everywhere there are contradictions with no less powerful powers and their interests.
