Fighter Jets Intercept American Airlines Flight Bound for Philadelphia
American Airlines flight AA-759 was intercepted by fighter jets on the way to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on July 19th.
The Airbus A330-300 plane flying from Athens, Greece, was in Italian Airspace when it lost radio communication, prompting the authorities to dispatch two Eurofighter jets from Istrana, Italy.
The communication was later re-established, and the fighter jets returned to the base.
The flight continued to Philadelphia.
