The Free Syrian Army (FSA) claims to have targeted the Military Airport in Deir Ezzor using mortar shells and destroying a Yoshin airplane in an explosion on 19 April 2013. "Yoshin" possible means Ilyushin !
Other reports indeed claim it to be an Ilyushin military cargo plane of the Syrian Air Force that was destroyed.
A video of the attack showed an aircraft tail behind a shelter. The airplane type cannot be established based on this video. The tail and the size of the aircraft looks like a Yak 40.
