Turkish eye over eastern Mediterranean

A Turkish Air Force Boeing E-7T ( 13-004 ) departed from Konya AB, central Turkey, is making a surveillance mission south of Cyprus.

The Boeing 737 AEW&C is a twin-engine airborne early warning and control aircraft. It is lighter than the 707-based Boeing E-3 Sentry, and has a fixed, active electronically scanned array radar antenna instead of a rotating one. The 737 AEW&C has been selected by the Turkish Air Force under “Project Peace Eagle”.
