Low flying plane in Sydney scared off by fighter jet


www.smh.com.au

Sydney CBD office workers who glanced out the window at morning tea today faced something straight out of Hollywood - a low-flying large passenger plane being chased across the harbour by a fighter jet.

This was a little bit scary in Sydney today. There was a lot of Sydneysiders thinking that it was 911 all over again.

I'm not saying that it's a conspiracy, but it's not every day a fighter jet scares off a 747 in a CBD. Training exercise, wayward pilot, call it what you will. It was weird.

Dang, I missed it

Sure it's a sign of the times, but you have to wonder at the mentality that went into this one.

... I heard what it was on the radio (I'm not in Sydney though). A full wrap up:

*scrap the link, it's the same you posted... misleading headline of your post, though*

Just the RAF seeing out an old 707 and getting some footage and freaking out some Sydney-siders while they were at it.

First of all, please adhere to the guidelines when posting to the breaking news forum. That was not the title at all, this was

Die Hard in the CBD? Not quite

Secondly it was not scared off, it was a retiring aircraft. Did you even read your own article you posted, Jeez.


Fortunately, the incident was not an air force pursuit of a hijacked passenger flight, but a "farewell flight" for the defence force's Boeing 707 aircraft. The aircraft was being retired from service after 29 years, the department said. About 11am today, the B707 aircraft made its farewell flight, accompanied by a Hawk 127 lead-in fighter aircraft from which photos of the flight were taken, the department said.
