Un Spanair es interceptado por dos F16 holandeses


F16A Spanair Airbus A320-200, registration EC-JJD performing flight JK-57 from Barcelona,SP (Spain) to Stockholm (Sweden), was enroute at FL360 over Belgium when radio communication between aircraft and air traffic control was lost after the airplane was handed off to Dutch ATC around 13:20L (11:20Z) (Simon Hradecky/THE AVIATION HERALD)

Two Dutch F-16 fighter aircraft were dispatched to intercept the aircraft and were heard in the Netherlands by their sonic boom. After the fighter pilots established visual contact with the Spanair crew the Spanair pilots were able to restore radio contact. The airplane was escorted out of Dutch air space into German airspace and continued to Stockholm, where the aircraft landed safely on schedule.
