Keeping in mind all the drama surrounded a Russian drone allegedly being shot down?
Two US drone crash/fails, that didn't get reported on anywhere until now:
"The USAF announced on 21 October that one of its General Atomics MQ-1 Predator unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which are also operated out of Incirlik, had suffered a mechanical failure and crashed in southern Turkey on 19 October.
Another USAF MQ-1 is also reported to have crashed near Al-Kut in Iraq on 17 October"
The United States has deployed 12 Fairchild-Republic A-10C Thunderbolt II ground attack aircraft to Incirlik Air Base in Turkey to support its strikes in Syria and Iraq.
The US Air Force (USAF) revealed the deployment on 22 October, although the aircraft arrived at Incirlik on 15 October.
The A-10s, from Moody Air Force Base, Georgia, are reportedly replacing the six Lockheed Martin F-16Cs that the USAF deployed to Incerlik from Italy in August. The A-10s have already flown combat missions over Syria and are supported by 300 ground personnel.
The deployment is not the first time A-10s have participated in Operation 'Inherent Resolve', as the US terms its strikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. In November 2014 the USAF deployed A-10s to Ahmed al-Jabr Air Base in Kuwait to support the operation.
The comment from the other day regarding this deployment:
