Kepez Mayor Hakan Tütüncü brings the aircraft to Dokuma after the train car. The Municipality of Kepez, which produces and simulates the 'Revolution' car, designed and produced by Turkish engineers, is now an example of the first Turkish aircraft 'Vecihi K-6'.
The Municipality of Kepez keeps the memories of the domestic production vehicles, which are designed and produced by Turkish engineers, but which cannot be mass-produced. For this purpose, Kepez Mayor Hakan Tütüncü has prepared a project to exhibit vehicles in a museum that have left their mark on the history of the country, wandered the streets of the city and took place in memories.
