Northern Cyprus

North of Nicosia

There is a large water treatment plant 3 nm NE of Ercan International airport which can be seen from quite a distance, making it a good visual navaid. If you fly directly west from that point you will be just on Turkey's side of the border.
At WP 2 "Ne mutlu Türküm diyene" (motto of the Republic of Turkey) is painted on a hillside.
