The 161st Squadron is based at the 6th Main
Jet Base of Bandirma and operates the F-16C/D in both day and night missions.
The recently applied tail art highlights the multi-role mission of the
squadron. The Bat (Yarasalar) stands out for the night mission while the
Eagle (Kartallar) highlights the day mission. The detachment to Malbork
consisted of three F-16C single-seaters and one F-16D double-seater jet.
The squadron performed a Tango-Scramble and a slow mover interception
training on our Skyvan. Afterwards the pilots joined our photoship for
some breath-taking pictures over the Hel Peninsula and the Polish coastline.
The day was mostly overcast but we were lucky to find some clear spots
to get some nice pictures.
