  1. Fighter planes and larger planes can gather intelligence from high altitudes and that is well above the range of any of ISIL’s weapons, so the manned planes ISIL was NOT shooting at them and would have been just a waste of ammunition if ISIL tried.

    The only planes that are used for close in visual intelligence gathering that is within ISIL’s weapons range the International Coalition use small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, and that really was the only thing that ISIL was shooting at.
