Turkey shoots down a RUSSIAN jet: Flaming Su-24 fighter is seen spiralling to the ground over Syrian border after violating Turkish air space

Turkish military has shot down a Russian war plane near its border to Syria, Ankara and Moscow confirms.

The Russian Sukhoi Su-24 jet was shot down by Turkish F-16 fighter planes on Tuesday morning after violating the country’s air space and ignoring several warnings, army officials said.

However, Russia’s Ministry of Defence claims the jet was in Syrian airspace, and was shot down from the ground.

    I still wonder if Putin understood what he was getting into by intervening and siding with the Shiites.

    Why is Turkey still part of NATO?

    I think I’ll take russia’s word as everyone knows turkey pilots can’t dog fight.

  • In my opinion, the Turks goofed in their estimate of the positions of the Russian aircraft, i.e. downed them in the mistaken assumption that they were over their border. I do hope that Russia will now bomb Turkey and teach them manners, Nato should stay out of this – Turkey should not be in Nato anyway.

    Sometimes, when the Russians try to step on your toe, you need to knee them in the crotch.
