Narrative:
The Syrian Arab Air Force Su-24 plane was apparently shot down. Insurgents report that they could bring down the aircraft utilizing 23mm anri-aircraft guns which does not sound logic. The reason behind the crash of this heavy bomber remains unclear but it is thought that mid-air ordnance detonation caused the massive damage to the fuselage which resulted in halving the aircraft.
Apparently the pilot ejected safely from the plane while the navigator failed to eject and KIA.
