MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Turkey and Azerbaijan have started joint air force drills, according to Azerbaijani media.

According to the APA news agency, Azerbaijan’s Air Force servicemen arrived in the central Turkish city of Konya for participation in the annual planned exercises, scheduled for March 7-25.

The drills will involve three MiG-29 fighter jets, three Sukhoi Su-25 attack aircraft and three military transport aircraft Il-76 of Azerbaijan’s Armed Forces.

    Flying bashi-bouzouks and junior Turks. What a company, lol. I am surprised they have MiG-29s. (MiG = Mikoyan i Gourevich)

    None of these aircraft glide very well. Actually, without electronics, they fall out of the sky faster than a sack-full of loaded baby diapers. The Russians have, as recently demonstrated in the gulf incident, the ability to jam opponents electronics. In case of war, they’ll be facing Russian Air Force Pilots.
