In modern warfare 3 you can now earn streak points for taking out enemy aircraft. Does the aircraft a SAM turret takes out count for streaks?

No, they do not.

I believe using kill streak weapons like using the predator missile to kill another player, does count towards another kill streak, but I don't think that SAM turret aircraft kills do.

    If you look in the lower right corner of the screen, there is an icon representing each killstreak reward you have turned on. Next to that are a series of lines - each is filled in when you get a point toward a killstreak. If a SAM turret gets a kill, a line isn't filled in, so it doesn't count toward your next killstreak.

The SAM Turret is used for clearing the skies of enemy killstreaks, it does not add to your pointstreak. Using it does give you XP though and after calling in a certain amount of SAM Turrets you complete the challenge "Keeping Em' Down".
