Thanks to Sputnik News some details of the Search Air Rescue [SAR] mission in the aftermath of the shoot-down of the Russian Su-24.
"One Dead as Russian Mi-8 Helicopter Attacked During Rescue Mission in Syria"
"A Russian Mi-8 helicopter came under attack while conducting a search and rescue operation, searching for the crew of the downed Su-24 in Syria. One naval infantry soldier was reported killed, the helicopter destroyed by mortar fire."
"The Russian General Staff said that two Mi-8s were involved in the operation to save the crew of the downed Su-24 bomber jet."
"One helicopter was shot down, its crew evacuate"
TWO RUSSIAN Mi-8 INVOLVED IN THE SAR MISSION. ONE SHOT DOWN AS REPORTED AND DESTROYED.
SAR missions ALWAYS fraught with great danger. In Vietnam it was that way, in Syria also.
