Today I was at an airshow in Belgium where there was a demonstration of an intercept manouvre. The manouvre was executed by 4 F16's. This manouvre is executed during a hijacking or when no radio contact is possible with the aircraft.

One flies at wing to wing with the airplane they want to intercept, forcing it to alter course, speed or altitude. One flies right behing the aircraft and two circle at high altitude ready to fire.

Here are the pictures... I'm sorry if the quality isn't too high... I only have a modest camera.

Awesome, I went to McGuires AFB airshow in the beginning of the summer and it was great. I forgot my vid camera and had to resort to digicam video (ugh)

anyway here's the vid: media.putfile.com...

For a "modest" camera those were some pretty good shots


Nicely done

You should see F-18's trying to bracket a Cessna - funny as hell.

I saw it over my house outside of NYC just after 911 - the max speed of the Cessna is barely above the stall speed of the F-18, making it an interesting sight to see...

@ Porschedrifter: I like the video!!

@ Fred T: Well I was lucky the show was in Belgium. In the Netherlands aviation rules state that the planes have to be further away from the audience. In Belgium however the audience may stand straight at the runway so it makes taking photographs a little bit more easy.

@xmotex lol... yeah that won't be easy for them...lol...lost target due to low speed
