The plane was filled with Russians. ISIS is mad at Russia for bombing them in Syria. It came down over ISIS held territory.
Purely coincidental, of course.
But whatever caused the crash, it is an indication or sign, that their is definitely a potential for support for the Russian military actions in Syria and more reason for Russia to destroy ISIS.

If it is true, that ISIS did indeed shoot down the Russian Airplane, then they have made one mistake that is going to cost them dearly.
What that will do, is bring the Russians in fully, as they are not going to stand by and see their aircraft or people killed, and they are merciless when it comes to counter terrorism. So they are going to wait and see what the black box states.
If said black box states that a missile hit it, then this is what will happen:
Russia will move boots onto the ground in Syria, and start a systematic sweep to attack and kill any and all members of ISIS and those suspected of such. It will put pressure on those countries who it has influences on such, ensuring that they also step up their game and it will be brutal.

Actually, a lot of people believe the west is funding ISIS. Or you could call it a coincidence all those times the west accidentally dropped weapons to ISIS. Or training of the terrorists.
The west has been bombing ISIS for how long now?
And why does Russia has more success in a month than the west has had in years?
The standard sport skydiving altitude is 12,500 feet AGL (Above Ground Level), sometimes up to 18,000 feet depending on the altitude of the drop zone, type of aircraft and type of jump.
