More Airspace Violations


DefenceNet reports that today 14 Turkish Air Force jets violated Greek airspace. This comes on the first working day after the visit of Greek PM Papandreou to Turkey.

Specifically in the morning 6 jets entered the Athens FIR in the Northern and Central Aegean and also entered Greek airspace once.

In the afternoon 8 more jets flew in the same general area and entered Greek airspace on four separate occasions.

On another note, it has been reported by Fileleutheros newspaper that Turkey is proposing a code of conduct in the Aegean for military air crews. The idea would be for Greek pilots not to dogfight with their Turkish counterparts during interceptions.
