    What is known so far? Was out at a party so I didn't see this news break.
    Elements of the military are currently attempting a coup, primarily in Istanbul and Ankara. Those leading the coup initially took significant control of several key areas but it seems like pro-Erdogan protesters, the police and government-sympathising military forces are mounting a fightback at the moment. Erdogan's plane is reported to be circling around Istanbul.

    Not too sure, this has been posted to the reddit live update multiple times now so either they've regained it or the coup never actually got hold of it.

    Is this over because Turkish people are celebrating on the streets?

    BBC reporting crowds gathering at the airport to greet the President so I assume therefore the link above regarding his flight is correct.

    CNN Turk also reporting he's landing at Ataturk.

    Erdogan has landed apparently, tanks are also reportedly on their way to Ataturk airport, obviously there to protect him

    That plane's just landed. Awaiting whether Erdogan is genuinely onboard.

    They do have a history of coups though.
    So I hear. But it's incredible nonetheless. I personally have never seen anything like this before
