A French fighter plane was photographed shadowing a commercial Jet2 flight back to Birmingham from Malaga on Friday afternoon. The fighter jet was seen flying alongside the commercial aircraft for at least 15 minutes.
Sarah Hatfield was flying on the aircraft, flight LS1204, from Malaga to Birmingham when she spotted the French fighter jet. “It was so close I could read the writing on its tail fin,” she said. “Someone spotted the French jet and told the cabin crew, who I presume told the Jet2 pilots. The air stewardess then announced there was nothing to worry about.”
Jet2 have said that they are still unaware as to why the aircraft was shadowing them and they are awaiting communication from the French air force.
