Turkey is making a statement about Israel’s killing of Turkish citizens by sending a message to the U.S.? Or is the hype only about a fly-by?

There is absolutely no reason for China and Turkey to be conducting a joint air exercise other than for the Chinese to make three statements to the U.S. -

(1) We can buy-off your friends.
(2) We will project military power abroad.
(3) There is nothing you can do about it.
