RAF fighter jets have escorted a Pakistan International Airlines plane to Stansted Airport.

How do you use Typhoons to control an unruly passenger? Are they equipped with x-ray goggles and gamma lasers we haven't been told about?
 
Typhoons for "unruly behaviour"??
 
The citation for a couple of DFCs will already be in the post.
 
Errrr, the aircraft is also an Airbus A330!
No, all big aircraft are 747's. The media sez so. Now they can speculate as to whether army men with machine guns will approach the plane in their tanks.
 
Unruly Passenger-It was David Beckham complaining about his Knighthood I believe:neutral:

Supposition on my part, but if the passenger is attempting to get on the flightdeck, it would make sense to go to Stansted.
 
How does a pair of Typhoons help the cabin crew get a grip of some knobheads kicking off on the passenger flight? Gen question. Don't see what they can contribute.

"Right, you bad bastards. Look out to your left.. See them? Well if you don't stop raiding the drinks trolley / fighting / whatever, they'll blow us out of the sky".

I expect that the procedure is not to take any chances with flights from certain destinations by waiting until those getting leery have been positively identified as knobheads rather than something altogether more serious.

I heard that story on Five Live's news. Anything new to add other than a passenger got a bit stroppy with the flight crew?

More a case of when/if the peace loving travellers from Pakistan take control of the flight deck they don't get to decide to demolish tall buildings in London
The aircraft goes to the location directed or it gets shot down
