Fighters escort Jersey flight in security alert

Post by GD on Fri 08 Apr 2011, 5:32 pm

FRENCH fighter jets were scrambled to escort a flight to Jersey following a mid-air security alert.

The two Mirage jets were called out when a Blue Islands flight with up to 46 passengers on board lost radio communication in French airspace.

The passenger plane, which was en route from Geneva in Switzerland, was escorted by the aircraft for several minutes before communication was re-established. (from JEP)
