Putsch durch das Militär


Explanation:
also: "Übernahme der Macht durch das Militär" and "Machtergreifung durch das Militär". To my opinion "Übernahme" ist not very common in this context and at the same time "Machtergreifung" is a sensitive word after Hitler-Germany. Another word coming close to it is "Putsch" which is describing more the act of taking over.

disagree  Roland Grefer: Putsch only covers takeover of a government/country, not takeover of a facility (i.e. an airport) during a crisis
