The dust cloud brought about by Turkey’s authoritarian drift should not be allowed to obscure the reality of the coup itself.
Located 35 kilometers out of Ankara, Akıncı Air Base served two important functions during the coup attempt on the evening of July 15, 2016. It was the base where F-16 fighter planes took off to terrorize the capital with low altitude flights, killing 68 people. And it was also the command center of the plot to overthrow the Turkish government.
