The wheel of the Turkish F-4 jet shot down by Syria several weeks ago, is seen in new photos released by the Turkish military. They also announced they had retrieved the bodies of the two pilots from the sea floor. The pilots' helmets and boots - parts of the engine - can be seen here in these underwater photos. A special ship was dispatched from this Turkish military port to recover the wreckage. The F-4 jet was brought down as it flew over Syrian waters close to the coast. Deborah Gembara, Reuters
