The scenario of our exercise today was a plane crash. Unfortunately, this was the most difficult exercise that could be experienced in our country and perhaps the most difficult conditions. For days, we worked on a model of this plane for two days just to re-enact the event. In addition to this, at the same time, the injured make-up of the exercise, the recovery of the wounded were all a process. But as you can see here, we get the reward of our efforts with the exercise we successfully concluded. Our aim, of course, is preparation. This is the purpose of the exercises, they are training. On this occasion, we saw the possibilities and capabilities of our friends, and we saw the capabilities of our own equipment.

We have seen not only education but also how we can work together, where we lack, where we see them, where they complement us.” News Source: İhlas News Agency (İHA) Bursa news, Turkey News, Breaking news on HABER16.COM.
