When there is a F-15 escort.
That means that they are only there to potentially shoot down the plane.
And everyone on board.
Just thought I would give a reminder to the subject.
Not really, I mean yes worse case scenario but that is similar to saying that when the cops show up to a crime scene that means that they are there to potentially shoot everyone, that is why they have guns.
In a situation like that they want to get planes up there quick, they are not going to send up another 747 or a helicopter to do an escort.
Hostages get shot by police while fleeing their captors all the time. And there may be several options available, but the minute you see a fighter escort outside of your passenger jet, you probably can't help but # your pants. Knowing that the government values your life a hell of a lot less than you do. The plane has insurance, the company cares little if it gets shot down.
