Erdogan clearly says they'd shoot down Russian planes in the future if they encroached on Turkish airspace again.  Then later prevaricates saying they might have acted differently had the Turks known it was a Russian plane:  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vi23YRtS6_E  It was impossible for the Turks to down that Russian jet unless they were following it closely and waiting in ambush: those air-to-air missiles have a theoretical range of 75km but are effective only up to 30-40km max in real world situations http://dsca.mil/major-arms-sales/turkey-aim-120c-7-amraam-missiles. Erdogan is a NATO man all the way.
