On 11/24/15 a Russian fighter jet was shot down after allegedly crossing into Turkish airspace. The Turkish Air Force claims to have warned the Russian jet up to 10 times to change course southward to avoid Turkish airspace. The jet was shot down resulting in the death of one pilot. We rate this claim as true due to released audio from the Turkish Air Force and confirmation from the United States Military. This is NOT BULLSHIT.

Confirmation from US Department of Defense: Q: Can you confirm that there were 10 warnings issued by the Turkish pilots to the Russian pilots? And the Turks claim the Russians did not respond. Can you confirm that?
COL. WARREN: Yeah, I can confirm that. Yes.
