    Best thing to come out of this is a rare instance on jet-on-jet warfare as it appears both factions have F-15/16s at their disposal.

    Seems like Erdogan once again managed to land safely in Istanbul. I expect the nation to go into siege mode once this finally ends, again assuming the coup fails

    This thing looks like it's going to drag. Doesn't help that the coup has yet to issue a mission statement or such explaining their motives (unless the Turkish media managed to muzzle it). Either...

    There is already bloodshed and this thing doesn't seem to be letting up. Also, while AJ is a better source than the Turkish national news, I tended to notice a strong bias toward Erdogan's gov't...

    Apparenly Erdogan is on a plane now attempting to seek asylum. Usually the time coups happen, when the head is absent
