Turkish Stars

Today it is a special date because of its notation: 09/09/09 . Furthermore it is important to Izmir in other ways. It is the 87th anniversary of survival of Izmir from Greek occupation.

On 15 May 1919, the Greek Army occupied Izmir. The Turkish Army which was commanded by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, retook possession of Izmir on 9 September 1922, effectively ending the Greco-Turkish War (1919-1922) in the field.

To celebrate the independence of Izmir, on 9th of September every year, Turkish Stars (Türk Yildizlari) put on a breathtaking show in Izmir. Turkish Stars is the only aerobatic team performing their displays with "eight" supersonic NF-5 aircraft, and the only team that has already performed a display to more than one million people.
