|Description||Shoot-down of a Russian Su24M bomber over Syria by a Turkish F16 fighter on 24 November 2015|
A Russian Sukhoi Su-24M bomber aircraft was shot down by a Turkish Air Force F-16 fighter jet near the Syria–Turkey border on 24 November 2015. According to Turkey, the aircraft was fired upon while in Turkish airspace because it violated the border up to a depth of 2.19Km for about 17 seconds after being warned to change its heading 10 times over a period of five minutes.  The Russia Defence Ministry denied the aircraft ever left Syrian airspace, counter-claiming that their satellite data showed that the Sukhoi was about 1km inside Syrian airspace when it was shot down. On 30 November 2015, the pilot Colonel Oleg Peshkov's body arrived at the Chkalovsky military airport near Moscow, and was met by Minister of Defence Sergei Shoigu and Russian air force Commander-in-Chief Victor Bondarev.
