Turkish F-16 shoots down Russian fighter jet near Syria border

28 posts in this topic

A Turkish F-16 fighter jet shot down a Russian war plane near the border with Syria Tuesday in an incident that raises the possibility of conflict between Moscow and NATO.

A U.S. official confirmed to Fox News that the Russian Sukhoi-24 was downed by an air-to-air missile near the town of Hatay, north of the port city of Latakia. The official said the aircraft's two pilots ejected from the plane and were last seen trying to evade capture.

The official added that the Russian jet was warned three times to depart Turkish airspace.

A Russian Su-24 fighter has been shot down in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said, adding the plane hadn’t violated Turkish airspace and was flying at an altitude of 6,000 meters.

“During the flight, the aircraft was flying within the borders of Syria, which was registered by objective monitoring data,” the ministry said, adding that the aircraft was "supposedly shot down from the ground.”

Look at the difference between these 2 news reports! Wag the Dog. 

I knew that with all of these different countries fighting in Syria with no cooperative agreements would result in something like this. This might be "the incident". Who knows?

And now it's time for... The Blame Game.  Step on up contestants and try to figure out who did what in this dangerous game of cat and mouse.  

 

I just hope this isn't THE incident that kicks it off but maybe they will come out and say "yea we F'd up, sorry about that". Wait that'll never happen.

So, a Nato country has shot down a Russian fighter jet, shot at least one pilot dead while helplessly floating down to earth in a parachute and downed a rescue helicopter.

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye.  

Buckle up kiddies, things are about to get real.
