      Yes, 1983 downing of the Korean Air Lines KAL 007, near Kamchatka is precisely what came to mind. Also, the few dozen US Navy reconnaissance planes deliberately shot down by the Soviets during the Cold War (mark I).

    Putin is desperate for a ceasefire. His allies in the EU will clamor for it. Continue the attack,there is substitute for victory!
