Two Belgian astrophysicists’ analysis show that both Turkey and Russia are lying about the downed plane. They have questioned both the official accounts of how a Russian military plane was shot down by Turkey on Tuesday.
Writing a blogpost for their university, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Dr Tom van Doorsslaere and Dr Giovanni Lapenta, said the plane could not have gone down the way either country said it had.
The Russian warplane was shot down by Turkish authorities on Tuesday and crashed a few miles into Syria.
Turkey said it gave Russia 10 warnings about violating its airspace before firing but Russia has dismissed these claims as “rubbish”.
