There has been a resumption in active air transportation traffic in recent days presumably delivering military equipment between Turkey and Azerbaijan, according to online air traffic monitors. The Russian telegram channel Radioskaner noted at least eight A400 and one C-130 flights from Ankara and other locations to Baku and back, between January 6 and 9. A similar spike in air transportation activity occurred ahead of the war against Armenia last year. There have been no official announcements as to the flights’ purpose and the Azerbaijani government denied Turkish media’s speculation that Turkey would be opening permanent military bases in Azerbaijan. Separately, Turkish social media has spread images of the Turkish air force’s 151st “Fighting Vulture” squadron patch that marks three air base locations in Azerbaijan: Ganja, Gabala and Lenkoran.
