Gradually we start saying goodbye to participants in the show, such as the IAR-99 Soim from Romania...

The Typhoon from Germany...
... though reporters keep on reporting, photographers keep on checking their images...
... and we have some space left for nice colored planes like this Iskry-team member (Poland)
... the SAAB-105 from Austria...
... an already living legend from Swedish aviation, jet-trainer, light fighter-bomber dating back to the sixties !
F-16D with 'some extra fuel'.....
The F-16D block 50 is built in Turkey (TAI, Turkish Aerospace Industries) near Ankara.

In the heat of the day people seek for some shade, like these TAI employees , also our Photographer Koos Heemskerk

And this is weher we say goodbye to the Turkish Airforce Izmir Celebration 2011, ofcourse we close down with: 
The Turkish Stars demo-team
The Turkish Stars performed all over Turkey during national days in about 6-7 performances !
While worrying if first aid ability and enough playground activities for the children were meeting the expectance... 
Commander Tasci almost forgot that all organisation efforts lead to one of the best organized shows this last decade !
Aviation rush in the blood creates high feelings of contentment either with pilots or with enthusiasts on the ground.
Turkish Stars participate 2011 in four outside shows including France The Netherlands Belgium and RIAT-Fairford UK
