Submission + - Turkey Downs Intruding Russian Fighter Near Syria Border

jones_supa writes: Turkish fighter jets shot down a Russian Sukhoi SU-24 fighter near the Syrian border on Tuesday after repeated warnings over airspace violations. Moscow said it could prove the jet had not left Syrian air space. Footage from private Turkish broadcaster Haberturk TV showed the warplane going down in flames in a woodland area. Separate footage from Turkey's Anadolu Agency showed two pilots parachuting out of the jet before it crashed. A Syrian rebel group sent a video to Reuters that appeared to show one of the pilots immobile and badly wounded on the ground and an official from the group said he was dead. This is the first time a NATO member's armed forces have downed a Russian military aircraft since the 1950s. The Guardian is following the developments with live updates.

This just Apple trashing Windows 10 for having app-ish features. In two - three years Apple will do exactly what he is trashing now and pretend they invented the whole concept.

This is not news.

Definitely not news. What you say in your post was already written several times on this page, before.
