This image, sent to me by Ulaşcan Yüksel, shows an impressive lineup of Turkish Air Force F-16C fighter planes on an airbase in Turkey.

I think 31 “Vipers” (F-16’s nickname within the fighter pilots community) are parked along the taxiway, but not completely sure.

Turkish F-16s have been quite active during the Syrian crisis, being scrambled to intercept both a Syrian liner allegedly carrying weapons and Assad’s helicopters flying a bit too close to the border between Syria and Turkey.
