Censor.NET reports citing Fox News quoting two U.S. officials.
As reported, three Russian MiG-29 fighter jets took off from their Soviet-era aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov and flew in the direction of Syria. Once airborne, one of the Russian jets appeared to have mechanical difficulties and turned around in the direction of the aircraft carrier.
The Russian jet splashed down in the water while attempting to land. A Russian rescue helicopter picked up a parachute and the pilot, who'd bailed out safely, Russian defense officials said.
