Israel Air Force nearly shoots down suspicious Continental Airlines flight

Four IAF jets were ordered to contact the plane when the Continental Airlines Boeing 777 failed to make radio contact with the requisite security codes prior to approaching Ben Gurion
 
Israeli government spokesman informed last week that two F-15s and two F-16s Israeli fighter jets came close to shooting down a Continental Airlines plane that lost contact with Ben Gurion Airport’s air traffic control as it approached Israeli airspace.

The spokesman noted that the four IAF jets were ordered to contact the plane when the Continental Airlines Boeing 777, Flight 90 from Newark, New Jersey, failed to make radio contact with the requisite security codes prior to approaching Ben Gurion Airport. 

He added that the four fighter jets forced the Continental plane to change its course, at which point the pilot renewed contact. All 273 passengers disembarked safely.
