Russian Fighter Jet Shot Down In Turkish Airspace

A Russian fighter jet has reportedly been shot down by a ground to air missile as it flew over Turkish air space today.

The fighter jet is thought to have been shot down by Turkey in what looks set to spark a diplomatic row. Turkey had warned Russia twice in the past two months over invading its airspace without permission.

The fighter jet was shot down at the Turkey-Syria border with two pilots onboard. A video is also making the rounds purportedly showing rebels shooting at the Russian pilots as they user a parachute to escape the flight.
