Hello,

A Jet Airways B777 (JAI118) flying from Mumbai to London was intercepted at FL360 over Germany on Feb 16 by two German Airforce Eurofighters. The B777 had lost radio contact with ATC over the Czech Republic.

The intercept was filmed from the cockpit of a British Airways B777 flying 2,000 ft above and behind the Jet Airways:


Sources tell that radio contact with the Jet Airways had already been re-established, but the fighter aircraft continued the intercept, presumably for training purposes.

BAW2042 flying above and behind JAI118 during the intercept:
