After the turkish jet being hit, and after the subject has cooled down, new rumors appear around their deaths, teasing a response from Turkey. It was
even admitted that russians were involved in the decision.
With that pretext, if someone is trying to tease Turkey to blame Assad, throwing a rocket inside their territory seems to be asking for trouble, with
Turkey has said that the documents showing that the pilots survived and were executed were faked. I have no trouble believing this, because the
rebels have faked other events as well. Several videos showing the rebels shooting down Syrian aircraft and helicopters have been proven to be fake.
One was even a remote control airplane, if I remember correctly.
There are too many holes in the story around this incident. The biggest one is that there is absolutely no evidence at all that the crew ever got out
of the aircraft. There was even an RC-135 in the area that should have detected the locator beacons in the seats of the F-4. Those beacons
automatically activate when the seats leave the aircraft, but the RC-135 in the area never detected a single ping from them. It's even speculated
that the Israeli Air Force had an intelligence gathering aircraft in the area, but they didn't pick anything up either.
The Turkish military was in the area shortly after the F-4 was downed, and found no evidence of parachutes, seats, radio signals, nothing. The
Syrians would have had to almost be directly under the plane when the crew punched out to recover them so quickly.
The wreckage of the aircraft had both bodies, and ejection seats located very closely to it. That means that the Syrians would have had to know
precisely where the wreckage ended up, and placed the crew, and their seats closely enough that it would appear that the crew went down with the
aircraft. That would be impressive to do without anyone noticing anything, considering that to recover it, they had to bring in an American salvage
ship, specializing in deep water recovery. Even then it took quite awhile to find the wreckage.
