On April 23, 2014, two Syrian MiG-23s entered Turkish airspace and were spotted by F-16C Fighting Falcons of the Turkish Air Force. Though one MiG did turn back after being warned, the other continued, prompting an attack by one of the F-16s who fired an AIM-120 AMRAAM missile, taking down the enemy warbird.
