Syrian authorities have apologized for taking down a military plane that had lost contact with the Turkish Armed Forces earlier today, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said.

The plane was taken down by Syrian forces, an official Turkish source confirmed to Hürriyet Daily News.

The pilots of a crashed Turkish military plane have been rescued by forces, daily Hürriyet reported.
The pilots, who are in good health, were located in the Mediterranean Sea.

A missing warplane that lost contact with Turkish Armed Forces earlier today crashed in Syrian territorial waters, Doğan news agency has reported.

Search and rescue teams are waiting for Syrian authorities to issue necessary permits to locate the plane. Mediterranean naval units are now approaching the area.

All connection has been lost between the Turkish Armed Forces and a Turkish military plane in the southern province of Hatay, according to an official statement from the forces.

The plane left the eastern province of Malatya at around 10 a.m., while the connection was lost at around noon, the statement said.

Search attempts are continuing in an effort to locate the missing plane.

FYI... Could this be the event that starts it all?

Turkey is a member of Nato, meaning that it could invoke Article V of the North Atlantic Treaty and summon the aid of all 28 countries in the alliance if it comes under attack.

Looks like I'm not the only one that thinks this is a big deal.

Lira plunges on report Syria shot down Turkish warplane
ISTANBUL (Reuters) - The Turkish lira fell sharply on Friday after a news report said a Turkish warplane had been shot down by Syrian air defenses, and analysts said it would be vulnerable to further losses as more details of the incident emerged.

that would put turkey in two conflicts ,the kurds and the syrians ,,but of note is the build up of nato forces for a "excercise" in the region ,,,,guess we know what that will be

Incirlik has a United States Air Force (U.S.A.F.) complement of about 5,000 airmen, with several hundred British and Turkish Air Force airmen also present

In response to the 11 September 2001 attacks, Operation Enduring Freedom began in October 2001. Incirlik served as a main hub for missions in support for the war in Afghanistan, including humanitarian airlift operations, MC-130 special operations missions, KC-135 refueling missions and sustainment operations for deployed forces. The aerial port managed a 6-fold increase in airflow during the height of OEF. When the main bases in Afghanistan and Uzbekistan were constructed, Incirlik’s airflow supporting OEF decreased to a baseline sustainment level.


Incirlik

Used by US, UK and Turkish air forces, the base hosts more than 1,000 US air force personnel, primarily of the 39th Air Base Wing. The facility has been used to support operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. It is believed to host around 90 US nuclear warheads under NATO weapons-sharing agreements, and is part of US European Command, rather than CENTCOM.

Damascus apology for downing Turkish military jet not confirmed: Erdogan

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday he could not confirm whether Syria had admitted to shooting down a Turkish warplane in the Mediterranean.

While reports circulated that Syria had apologized for the incident, claiming it was a mistake, Erogan told a press conference in Ankara that he had no firm information on the apology.

He also said he could not confirm whether the plane had been shot down or crashed.

According the newspaper Hüriyet, the plane was shot down, by Syria, Syria appologized and the two pilots were saved (from the sea)

Turkey has been an alley of Syria, but last year they took the side of the Syrian resistance / terrorists, giving them protection in the mountains.

You heard it here first...

If enough of the right people (the good guys in high places) shut it down by speaking out and calling bullshit on them it'll quiet down and they'll go back to the drawing board for a few more months then take another run at it from a different angle. War collages, military think tanks brainstorm all the scenarios prior to setting the final wheels in motion (ask yourself why Africacom was installed a couple of years ago then draw the parallel to Northcom), so this Iranian ambassador stuff may be a feint/distraction.
If not, then it'll be all systems "go".

(Watch what happens in/from Turkey, is my guess.)
