Posted on 12/30/2003 3:47:17 PM PST by BurbankKarl

if you have a good scanner in So Cal, tune to 271.0, set it in AM mode and listen to Norad intercept Air France flight 68, due at LAX 515pm

two F16s from AZ current refueling off Pacific

Are the F-16s airborne yet? I can just see the looks on the faces of the poor passangers when they see who is flanking them. The French passangers will stage an immediate surrender dance.

Other than general interest, is there a reason for listening to NORAD? Is something going on with the French airliner? Are the F-16's to intercept?

congratulations! you have passed the test to become a wire service reporter or news director of any major market broadcaster, where the motto is "we don't report, we repeat."

What about Michael Jackson?

If there were three names that I wish I could have banished from all news from now on, it would be Michael Jackson, Kobe Bryant and Scott Peterson.

Of course, that would kill 7/8ths of all Fox News features...

Perhaps that explanation, that they are regularly intercepting flights and that this is just another one, could have been some of the background info in your original post. Your Breaking News post doesn't give those kind of clues.

Flight 68 is supposed to land at 6:05pm local time. If they were really serious, they would be shadowing the flight from the time it entered NORAD airspace over Canada.

That's the same flight no. under suspicion before.

Apparently the French did it twice: they questioned and released Richard Reid, so he could get on the next flight and try to blow it up and now they questioned and released the terrorists on Christmas eve and let them loose, so they can try again.
