BREAKING - Turkey shoots down Syrian Mig

Turkey claims the Syrian fighter violated its airspace. The pilot ejected safely.

First question - did the Syrian Mig really invade Turkish airspace and ignore 4 separate warnings to turn back? To what purpose? My stance on this is that it is extremely doubtful to say the least. To what end?

Second question - the pilot landed...where exactly?

This definitely ups the ante in the current crisis. What I would like to determine is whether this is another NATO provocation aimed at enticing a Syrian response, or whether the pilot, through error or consciously, was actually stupid enough to actually violate Turkish airspace.

Please weigh in as this develops.
