SyAAF Mi-8/17 Shot Down (2015-06-13)

SyAAF Su-24M2 Shot Down (2015-06-11)

Today, 11th June 2015, a SyAAF Su-24M2 operating from Seen AB crashed in the eastern countryside of Dar'a near Nahta village.
Eye-witnesses stated that the pilot ejected safely, which means that the navigator did not and apparently KIA.
The Fencer is reported to be downed by 23mm AA gun which does not sound logic. Causing such damage to a heavy bomber is not that easy using such weapon, although taking into consideration it must receive many shots in the same area, instead, the reason behind the crash of this aircraft remains unclear but it is thought that mid-air ordnance detonation caused the massive damage to the fuselage which resulted in halving the aircraft as seen.

Above, the wreckage of the SyAAF Fencer can be also seen in this VIDEO. Newly published walk-around the wreckage can be seen here in this VIDEO and this VIDEO.

The coverage of this incident was good as the aircraft could be seen while in fire prior to hit the ground, in this VIDEO and this VIDEO.
