Turkish Air Force's F-16 jet after take off

BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 P.M.) – A researcher working for an American newspaper published a satellite photo, which is believed to be of two Turkish F-16 fighter planes parked at an airport in Azerbaijan.

Christiaan Treibart, a correspondent for the New York Times, said that a satellite image taken on October 3 showed what was likely to be at least two F-16 fighter planes crouching on the floor of Ganja airport in Azerbaijan.

Treibart explained that this conclusion was reached by comparing the apparent characteristics of a number of aircraft, including those operated by the Azerbaijani Air Force of the MiG-21, MiG-29, Su-25 and L-39.

Armenia previously accused Turkey of launching an attack on their Su-25 jet that was taking off from an airport inside the country.

The accusation revolved around Turkish F-16 fighters, which Baku claims is not currently on its territory.

The Press Secretary for the Armenian Defense Ministry, Shushan Stepanyan, had announced earlier that a Turkish F-16 plane had shot down an Armenian Su-25 plane in her country’s airspace.
