Turkish police on Monday started a search of the 10th Air Tanker Base in Adana’s Incirlik Air Base in connection with Friday’s failed coup attempt, according to judicial sources.

Police are investigating air traffic control and radar data at the base from where a tanker aircraft which refueled warplanes involved in bombing Ankara during Friday’s coup were found to have taken off.

Speaking on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, the sources added that the military crew which enabled the refueling of the F-16s is also under investigation. Two acting Chief Public Prosecutors and five prosecutors from Adana Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office are in charge of the investigation.
