A Turkish Air Force F-16C attending the Nato Tiger Meet in Konya, sports the kill marking “earned” after shooting down a Syrian Mi-17.

On Sept. 16, 2013, a Syrian Arab Air Force Mi-17 Hip helicopter that violated the Turkish airspace by 2 km was shot down by a Turkish Air Force F-16C belonging to the 182 Filo.

Noteworthy, a photograph, taken at Konya airbase during the NATO Tiger Meet 2015 exercise and published by the Turkish Kokpit.aero website, shows the F-16 (serialled 92-005) sporting a Mi-17 kill mark to celebrate the aerial victory over the Assad’s utility chopper.
