Delta Airlines Flight Intercepted By F-16s As Passengers Save The Day
On May 19th, 2016, EgyptAir flight MS804 disappeared from radar over the Mediterranean Sea. There was no distress call made to air traffic control, the only clue being that there was smoke detected in a lavatory. Theinvestigation is still underway with no definite answers.Every piece of evidence does point to an onboard explosion however.
Although this terrible tragedy is closely followed by major media outlets, there wasanother incident that same day that went mostly unnoticed.That was Delta Airlines flight DL8957 from Germany to Kuwait.
Just a few hours after MS804 disappeared, the Delta flight was also flying over the Mediterranean Sea and was not responding to calls,although air traffic controllers were next to screamingas they feared a possible hijacking.
With no response for some time, the Ministry of Defense was called andtwo F-16s were scrambled to intercept the planeas is standard protocol.
The F-16s approached the Delta flight and tried to make radio contact again and multiple times, but were met with silence. One fighter pulled ahead of the passenger plane and used light signals to see if they’d respond. They didn’t, although the otherF-16 pilot saw the two pilots in their seats in the cockpit.
Here’s the kicker. As you’d imagine, thepassengers who could clearly see two fighter jets pull up next to their windowswere getting frantic. Not knowing what was going on, they alerted all the flight attendants to what they saw out their windows.
The attendants went over to the cockpit and had to bang on the door multiple times before the pilot finally opened the door.
They were asleep the whole time.
整個事件發生的時候 他 們 都 在 睡 覺
Yes, that actually happened.
Not stated that all of the above took place in greek airspace, in Greece with greek F-16s
Yeah an American F16 would had shot them down first and asked questions later!smile emoticon
對啊假如是美軍F16一定會 先 打 下 來 在問問題 !
Paolo Zampieri is that stupid statement backed up with any facts that you failed to share?
Like, Paolo is totally smart. He probably finished the entire USA Today crossword!
Here folks, trigger-easy IS Navy:
USA Today? Why bother reading that trash? Disney channel would be more serious than ANY US media.
美國今日?爲什麽要讀那個垃圾?迪斯尼頻道都比 任! 何! 美國媒體認真。
This is not the first time this has happened to Delta crews!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
Not just Delta crews my friend. Life gets boring in cruise with autopilot engaged,
