Syrian Air Force Su-22 leaking fuel after being hit by rebel fire

The following video, shot on Oct. 7, allegedly shows a Syrian Arab Air Force Su-22 Fitter hit by rebel fire in the province of Daraa.

According to some unconfirmed reports, the aircraft crashed later. Indeed, it appears to be leaking fuel from the left wing (and from the tail section).

Syrian combat planes and helicopters have been particularly active in the last days: on Oct. 5, Su-24 Fencer attack planes and Mi-17 Hip choppers flew towards the border with Turkey and turned back a few miles before violating Ankara’s airspace.

    The smoke from the fuselage is from when he fires his gun. One can hear the sound when the bullets impact. Like with the A10. Looks like he was one pissed driver that came round for a final run before rtb, or bailing.
