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.
