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

The orders may be to shoot, but if that's the order then it's an illegal order, which means that he can't court-martial me for insubordination.

As a soldier you never ever fire on civilians. Whether you're an Army-dog, a Squid, or a Flyboy, that thing is common among everybody who has ever served.

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.
