Impressive HD video brings you aboard a Russian Su-24 jet during air strikes in Syria

Pretty cool footage.

Released by the Russian MoD recently, the following video brings you aboard a Russian Air Force Su-24M Fencer bomber during an air strike over Syria.

The footage includes clips shot with a GoPro-like camera attached to the left-hand wing during take-off, bombing run (from high-altitude with dumb bombs) and landing of the aircraft at Hmeymim airbase, near Latakia.

A Su-24M was shot down by a Turkish Air Force F-16 after violating the Turkish airspace on Nov. 24, 2015.
