Turkish Air Force aircraft


Turkey had information about the route and the time of flight of Su-24

Turkey follows the route and the time of flight Russian bombers in Syria.

That is why, according to the Ministry of Defense of Russian Federation, and was chosen as the time for the attack on the Russian Su-24. Experts believe that the ability to track the Russian aircraft was present in the Turkish Air Force due to the fact that Russia has warned NATO its intention to make their sorties for bombing LIH positions.

In fact, according to many experts, NATO member countries conducting a special operation in Syria against the Islamic State group severely limit the capabilities of the Russian military, since air strikes require you to choose a special time and carefully plan the route along which the flight will be carried out, which the queue may be one of the reasons for the closure of airspace over Syria for foreign aircraft.

Avia.pro notes that during the special operation in Syria, Russian planes have already made about 5 thousand sorties.
