Here's amazing footage of a Jet Airways Boeing being intercepted by two EFs of the German Air Force while flying over Germany. Jet Airways flight 9W 118, carrying 330 passengers and a crew of 15 from Mumbai to London Heathrow, was over Cologne when radio contact abruptly lost.


The German Air Force scrambled two Eurofighter Typhoons to escort the Boeing 777-300, which is thought to have tuned in at the wrong radio frequency.





Footage captured from a British Airways plane flying 2,000 feet above 9W 118 shows the fighters flying alongside the Indian passenger jet. The plane continued along its planned flight path and the fighter pilots managed to restore radio contact just north of Nuremberg using emergency channels.

As a precaution, the two Typhoons continued to escort the plane until it made a safe landing at London Heathrow.


But that's not all! On line commentators have pointed out that at around 1:30 into the video you can see a small dark object moving faster than the other aircraft. It is first spotted to the left of the Eurofighter Typhoons before moving into the top right corner of the screen.

Could be another passenger plane but its speed discounts that. So what was it?

Any idea why they lost radio contact?

There are at least two, i think three business jets that cruise just under mach 1. They're quite a bit faster than a passenger aircraft in normal cruise.

Most likely just missed a frequency change at handover to another controller.

I was close. One pilot was resting, the other switched to the wrong frequency, and had his headset turned down.

Cool footage, thanks. Had me scratching my head but the Mrs pointed out it is a shadow from the closest jet to the cloud. After rewatching a few times, looking at the angle and speed I agree.

I'd say it's another plane, of some sort. Clearly you can hear one of the pilots say "there's the other guy" when it come's into view.

Thank you for the explanation.
Good to see they can scramble and intercept so fast now adays.

Most alert fighters (known as QRA in several other nations) are on what's known as alert 15. They run engines every two days or so to align their navigation systems and check them out, and they have 15 minutes from the time the call comes in, to wheels up.

They have various alert statuses. Alert 5 is sitting in the aircraft, near the end of the runway, engines running. Alert 10 is sitting in the aircraft, ready to start engines, near the end of the runway. Alert 15 is usually considered the lowest of the alert statuses.

Did you watch the same video? The left side of the plane is lit up from the sun, the shadow moves not fluent from left to right.
My question would be how can that be a shadow?

And on a more disturbing note, here in germany it's not on the news at all?

Probably that 'other guy' was the second Eurofighter to join the interception.

It could be a shadow of a plane somewhere to the left, not in the field of view of the camera.

Google shows multiple german news outlets mentioning the incident.

True.

I was just a bit disturbed because I got n24 running and they had the Harrison Ford incident, but not this. I should have said "tv news".

'Funny, how the topic of this thread is about one thing but it quickly becomes side-tracked about an entirely unrelated aspect with a throwaway explanation for the dark object being tossed out and accepted.

This should have been in the UFO section, no?

Whatever, the video is undoubtedly spectacular!

If it's not a shadow, it's almost certainly a business jet flying in the same area. Both the G650 and Citation X have cruise speeds of mach 0.9. That puts them over 600 mph, compared to about 560 mph for the 777.

If the biz jet is the faster one, wouldn't it also tend to be higher than the commercial rig and probably also displaying a contrail? How many biz jets are dark colored or black? And if it is another jet, I must assume the distance between the two craft is great enough in distance and altitude that there is no problem with a safety issue. I also assume that the Turkish jet had its transponder on even if the radio was on the wrong channel. I don't particularly care to "worry" this topic to death, but I don't care for easily dismissals either.

We did "park" all of the Blackbirds didn't we?

doesnt look like a shadow to me because it looks like it goes below the clouds at a certain point. how could a shadow do that? i might be wrong ofc

You're making all kinds of assumptions. They MIGHT be higher, they might be lower, it depends on their flight plan and where they're going. A bizjet is whatever color the owner decides to have it painted. If they want it black, or dark, it will be.

See following Metabunk threads. Match up with airliners that were crossing under the flight path. Also image taken from the ground of the intercept.

Maybe it was the other typhoon circling around at a lower altitude before joining the intercept.
That would account for the speed...not to mention the video commentary saying " there's the other guy" once the unknown object comes into frame.
