Military movements over Turkish Mediterranean coast

Anyone know why there’s so much air activity currently? The jets are too high to see visually but the sounds appear to be very frequent.

Anything to do with the ongoing situation at the Syrian border?

Do you seriously expect a reply from anyone in the know?

Perhaps not, but this seems surely one of the better avenues for information.
Otherwise, it's only Pravda and Xinhua that still report actual news.

Must be something to do with those daily Air Displays that have been embedded in Turkish Enroute airspace NOTAMS for the last few years...

Whilst I don’t expect top secret information being disclosed on here, I thought there may be someone who has a rough idea of what’s going on in the skies over Turkey.

Really surprised at the lack of 'BEADWINDOW' posts lately when someone posts about sensitive things.
Is BEADWINDOW now gone and forgotten?
Ah well I suppose it was past it's sell by date, not F-35 enough I guess

Not to worry. The OP is in Turkey, posting questions online about Turkish National Security. He's likely been dragged off in a black Karsan van by now.

I think the answer to that is "yes" - one of those Cold War Warrior terms that seemed to die with the advent of the Internet.

Cold War warriors should recall that BEADWINDOW was used to notify that protected information had been passed, and was not a term of warning. As I can’t see any EEFIs in this thread, there would appear to be no reason for it to have been called.

Anyway, modern wide-band buffering and voice recognition technology make this fixed code word a security risk in itself... simply listen out for ‘beadwindow’ and rewind a few seconds to find the juicy nugget of information without any need for hours of analysis.
