How safe is Turkish airspace?

Apparently 42 military helicopters have gone 'missing' since the failed coup last Friday, and the Istanbul police is on the lookout.

From RT: https://www.rt.com/news/351776-istan...e-f16-erdogan/

Turkish police have urgently ramped up their presence in Istanbul, with special forces and military hardware deployed to the streets and orders to down aircraft without warning, following unconfirmed reports of rebel helicopters approaching the city.
Really?!

42 Helicopters Missing in Turkey Sparking Concerns of a Second Coup Attempt

With the accidental downing of MH17 in mind, one has to wonder how safe Turkish airspace really is if the military, apparently, can not account for some of it's equipment?

Clip I was just wondering if they landed on the actual night of the uprising. As it may have ended rather differently, giving the crews a "surprise holiday"
