Syrian Pilot Found Alive after US Downed Plane over Raqqah

Recommended Posts

The pilot of Syrian fighter plane recently shot down by the US-led coalition has been found in the countryside of Raqqah.

According to Sputnik, Captain Ali fahd was found alive and well by Syrian troops in the village of Shuwaihat in southern Raqqah on Monday.

The pilot had landed close to the village after successfully parachuting from his Sukhoi Su-22 aircraft, which was shot down on Sunday. After the Syrian army announced that one of its planes had been shot down, the US claimed that it had targeted the plane "in collective self-defense of coalition-partnered forces" in Syria’s Tabqa.

I heard that he was found and had a broken leg.  Can't remember who had him though, but I'm sure it wasn't Syrian forces.

SU-22 was shot down, which is very easy...

With SU-35 would be a different story...
