US Navy Shoots Down Syrian Aircraft in First Since 1999

The US Navy reported that an F/A-18E Super Hornet shot down a Syrian Su-22 yesterday.

The US military hasn’t shot down a (manned) aircraft since 1999, when Air Force F-15s downed MiG-29s during Operation Allied Force.

Perhaps a new era will dawn for the fighter pilot.
