Istanbul, Turkey

Veteran Pilots:  There's a story behind this headstone, but here is all you know from the clues left behind: (1) He counted Istanbul as his home. (2) He was only twenty-five years old. (3) He was a proud member of the Turkish Aeronautical Association. (4) This is the intriguing part: His inscription reads "Martyred Pilot." Detective skills needed (and also some Turkish).
