MOSCOW, March 5. /TASS/. The Turkish rescue team has found the wounded pilot of Syrian air force plane that crashed earlier in Turkey's southern Hatay province, the Daily Sabah reported Sunday.
The pilot was taken to hospital, NTV television channel said.
On March 4, it was reported that a Mig-23 fighter jet of the Syrian Air Force crashed in the area bordering Turkey. According to Prime Minister Binali Yildirim, the plane was supposed to be a Mig-23 of the Syrian air force, while the pilot was believed to have bailed out.
