Übermittelt
 
This is the terrifying moment that a passenger travelling from Dubai to London spotted a fighter jet next to her window. Sabrina Fawaz was travelling with her husband on the British Airways flight BA108 on Saturday when the plane temporarily lost communications with air traffic control as it entered Hungarian air space causing two Hungarian Air Force Gripens to be scrambled.

Can we rewrite the headline please maybe
"Terrifying moment Hungarian Pilot had to Intercept BA flight that had gone silent in the skies"
Headline makes it sound like a KAL007 style event when in fact the BA flight had flow into Hungarian Airspace with out comms.

Terrifying would be a passenger watching the missile coming up to blast MH17.

Rather have a fighter intercept than another 911.

Been on an intercepted flight many years ago. 1968 flying from BOI to LAX. Fighters out of Nellis AFB used to intercept commercial jet aircraft for practice in the Nevada corridor. We got lucky that day and saw a fighter up close off our DC9's wing. No big deal, the captain announced it.

lol you could do that in 1968....if you did that now, you'd have a bunch of idiots screaming and crying in the cabin, then suing the airline and air force for undue stress after landing.
