    A Russian Air Force Su-24 was domed by a Turkish Air Force F-16 over Turkish Air Space near the Syrian border. The Russian Pilot ejected but was later found dead by FSA Turkmen rebels.

    The pink line is the flight path of the Russian plane. After not heeding to warnings to exit Turkish air space the plane was downed.

    Approximately one month ago a Russian drone was brought down by the Turkish Air Force after violating Turkish air space.

    Nice analysis, I put it on social media. Hopefully things don't escalate. NATO will hold a special meeting on the issue.

    Russian jets violated Turkish air space back in October and had Turkish planes on radar lock before. The Russians got what was coming.
