Istanbul, July 10 () - Turkish former air force general Tahsin Şahinkaya, the last surviving member of the 1980 "coup coincil" died on Thursday. He was 90.

The putsch on September 12, 1980 was the bloodiest in Turkey's coup-ridden history, overthrowing a civilian government and putting in place a military rule, under the name of "national secruty coincil" that ruled Turkey for three years.

Şahinkaya was the last remaining survivor among the coup leaders after the death in May aged 97 of Kenan Evren, the army general who led the junta and served as president from 1980-1989. Sahinkaya died at a military hospital in Istanbul.
