The RF-4E was accompanied by an electronic signal intelligence CASA 235
aircraft which remained outside of Syrian airspace while the RF-4E was
making runs in and out of Syrian airspace in an effort to get the
Syrians to activate their air defense systems so that electronic
intelligence could be gathered. The Turkish government is blatantly lying and trying to cover up what happened to save face. The fact is
the RF-4E was not shot down by a SAM but by anti aircraft artillery
(AAA) which means it was flying close to shore and flying low. Had the
Syrians launched a SAM as the Turkish government is claiming, not only
would it have showed up on Turkish land based radar but also on the
RF-4E's onboard warning system and there would at least be radio chatter
from the pilot and evidence of evasive action, none of that exists!
