SyAAF Su-22M-4 Shot Down (2016-04-05)


This afternoon, a SyAAF Su-22M-4 code numbered 949, piloted by Brig. General Khaled Sa'id and operating from She'irat AB, has been crashed near Al-Eis (العيس) town to the south west of Aleppo city; footage from crash site can be seen HERE and HERE.




It was thought the Su-22 in question flying such high was crashed due to a technical failure, but later on the pilot confirmed his plane received "ground fire".
The pilot whom is the commander of No. 677 squadron ejected safely and caught POW as can be seen in this VIDEO; and this VIDEO shows the pilot while para-dropping.
