Between the fuel-guzzling low altitude of the holding pattern of the F-16s, which miraculously coincided with the flight times of the Russian airplanes, & the fact that they didn’t chase the airplane immediately upon its alleged border incursion, all that smells very much like a pre-planned operation. The Turks allowed the Russian plane to hit a target & make a long seven or eight minute re-attack pass & then came in from their hidden low altitude position. They came up a little higher to gain a good firing altitude, came whistling south, hit the Su-24, dove under the radar coverage at the same time that they entered Syrian airspace & headed north out of radar coverage.  Such an ambush wouldn’t have been hard to pull off because the Russians state clearly that they had coordinated with NATO & the Americans, announcing this attack well in advance.
