Interception by jncarter Interception by jncarter
Situation: Civil Airbus, 200 passengers, no radio communication.

Aircraft has strayed off track.

Two F-16's have been tasked to intercept, identify and neutralise any threat. One moves into station behind the airliner whilst the other closes for a visual inspection.

If ordered, could you fire on a civil aircraft ?

Composited and rendered in Lightwave. Post work in Photoshop CS4

I wouldn't fire on a civi plane but if it was going to be used to kamikaze into something, I'd shoot up one of the engines and tail

In the pilot's head:
"I shouldn't...but there are orders...I'm not responsable...but the guns are mine...AAARGH!! WHAT SHOULD I DO, MOM ??!!"

Best scenario was on Oct. 11, 1985 - F-14s intercepted hijacked 737, no shots fired.

I think, if it were a last resort, I would fire on the engines and leave all the control surfaces intact, that way they wouldn't be able to get far, but would be able to glide down with control of the airplane. Either way, not a good situation. D: I would avoid shooting at all costs.
