Photographer's Note



After having spent almost a day following the news, calling Sister and poring through facebook, I go back to my normal routine. Last I heard from Sister was that things were almost back to normal and that she was hoping to fly tomorrow for vacation. However, part of me says this coup attempt is the end of Turkey as I knew it, the dark forces that have been at work the last decade or so are going to take advantage of this event to tighten their grip on what was once a Western-looking fledgling democracy.

When I prepared this photo, I was planning to dedicate it to Ike Harel (ikeharel), who often shows us photos of airplanes taking off from / approaching Ben Gurion Airport. This is one of Turkish Airlines planes in Star Alliance livery: TC-JPP, Airbus A320-232 descending to Atatrk International Airport on its flight from Erzincan. That day, the air corridor to the airport was over Sisters house and there was a plane passing over us almost every minute.


Ike iin: THY Star Alliance Dış Tasarımı

Haberlerin izleyip, ablamı arayıp ve facebooku tarayarak neredeyse bir gn geirdikten sonra normal alışkanlığıma geri dndm. Ablamdan son duyduğum herşeyin neredeyse normale dndğ ve onun tatil iin yarın umayı umduğuydu. Ancak, iim bana diyor ki bu darbe girişimi, benim bildiğim Trkiye'nin sonudur, son on yıl kadardır alışmakta olan karanlık gler bu olaydan yararlanıp bir kez Batıya dnk ieği burnunda demokrasi zerindeki kavramalarını sıkacaklar.

Bu fotoyu hazırlarken, ben sık sık bize Ben Gurion Havaalanına/ndan yaklaşan / kalkan uakların fotoğraflarını gsteren Ike Harele (ikeharel), adamayı planlıyordum. Bu Trk Hava Yolları'nın Star Alliance dış tasarımlı uaklarından biridir: TC-JPP, Erzincandan uuşunda Atatrk Havalimanı'na doğru alalan Airbus A320-232. O gn, havaalanına hava koridoru ablamın evinin stnden geiyordu ve bizim zerimizden hemen hemen her dakikada bir geen uak vardı.
