SoloTurk, the Turkish Air Force’s F-16 display team, will be supported by the Airbus A400M at this year’s RAF Waddington International Airshow.
Turkey only took delivery of the aircraft in April of this year and this will be a UK début for the A400M in Turkish service, and a first visit to Waddington for the type, with the RAF expected to receive its initial examples in 2015.
The aircraft is currently based at Kayseri in Central Turkey, where it is being used for training, and the Turkish Air Force will eventually take delivery of a total of 10 airframes.
Due to arrive in the week running up to the RAF Waddington International Airshow, the A400M will return to Turkey on Friday 4 July, arriving back at Waddington on Monday 7 July, to collect the people and equipment associated with SoloTurk.
Look out for a full preview of the airshow on Global Aviation Resource next week, and, if you are planning to attend the show we would advise you to purchase tickets in advance if you have yet to do so.
Tickets are selling very well and as it stands there is no guarantee that tickets will be available on the day.
Global Aviation Resource would like to thank the team at RAF Waddington International Airshow.
