    Turkish fighter jets have shot down a Russian warplane near the Syrian border after it violated Turkey's airspace, military officials say.

    Turkish F-16s warned the jet over the airspace violations before shooting it down, a military official said, adding that the plane's origin was not clear.

    Russia's defence ministry told the Interfax news agency that the downed jet was Russian and said Turkish airspace was not violated.

    Footage from private broadcaster Haberturk TV showed a warplane going down in flames in a woodland area, a long plume of smoke trailing behind it.

    The plane went down in area known by Turks as Turkmen Mountain in northern Syria near the Turkish border, Haberturk said.

    Separate footage from Turkey's Anadolu Agency showed two pilots parachuting out of the jet before it crashed.

    Al Jazeera's Arabic Service tweeted that one of the pilots had been captured.

    Russia has repeatedly carried out air strikes in Syria in defence of president Bashar al-Assad.

    Turkey called this week for a UN Security Council meeting to discuss attacks on Turkmens in neighbouring Syria, and last week Ankara summoned the Russian ambassador to protest the bombing of their villages.

    Ankara has traditionally expressed solidarity with Syrian Turkmens, who are Syrians of Turkish descent.

    Turkish prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu has spoken with the chief of military staff and the foreign minister about the developments on the Syrian border, the prime minister's office said in a statement, without mentioning the downed jet.

    He has ordered the foreign ministry to consult with NATO, the United Nations and related countries on the latest developments, his office said.

    Not possible. I read on this very board that US hardware was inferior to Russia's.
    Add in to the equation a Turkish pilot?
    Never. :no:

    In a great HBO movie Dawns Early Light, WW3 starts due to conflict between Russia and Turkey.

    It boggles the mind how anti American and pro Russian this place has gotten, I think we should all take a step back and think if reversed would this kind of talk be tolerated by Putin? Not bloody likely....

    Turkey and Russia have bad blood going back to at least the Crimean war in 1854.

    Turkey, our Nato "ally", is covering ISIS supply lines and actually supplying them.
