Demo Pilot Captain S.Yalın AHBAB, the pilot who was behind last year’s spectacular display by the SOLOTÜRK F-16C Fighting Falcon has retired from the Turkish Air Force.
Captain S.Yalın AHBAB helped to establish the team three years ago and has successfully completed dozens of displays across Europe and the Middle East.
His successor, Capt Yusuf Kurt, will fly the display from 2014 onwards and we wish him the very best and look forward to seeing him in the UK.
S. Yalin Ahbab is now pursuing a new career flying for Turkish Airlines.
The Lockheed Martin F-16 celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and GAR will be bringing you a whole host of features on the Fighting Falcon in due course.
GAR would like to thank Evert Keijzer.
