Pakistan’s F-16s Fighter Jets could’ve shot down the Indian Jetliner which entered Pakistani airspace while masking its identity with a Military Flight ID on 23rd September. That’s what Modi, Doval duo wanted to happen.
Pakistan Air Force reacted responsibly & professionally to the suicidal stupidity of assigning the military code to a civilian aircraft.
The incident occurred on September 23 and the flight involved in the incident was SG-21, which had taken off from Delhi for Kabul. Around 120 passengers were on board.
“It was an uneventful flight thereafter. No one was injured. The incident was reported to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and the pilot was debriefed,” said an official aware of the matter.
Military aircraft carrying VIPs have to submit their flight path and seek prior permission for each flight when flying through another country, while commercial airlines file their six-monthly schedules with the aviation regulator.
