While a Russian Air Force Antonov An-124 ( RA-82014 ) left Murted AB near Ankara (the airbase where in the past weeks differents military flights landed to delivery first components of S-400 missile system) another Antonov An-124 (RA-82038) is flying to Turkish airbase.
The first delivery of the S-400 began on July. Acording to Russia’s TASS news, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the delivery of the advanced air defense system will be completed by April 2020.
The US has strongly urged Turkey to pull back from the deal, warning that it could face economic sanctions under the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act and Turkey has been removed from the F-35 project.
