Jet Airways Boeing 777-300ER flight #9W118 from Mumbai to London Heathrow had a loss of communications over the German airspace near Cologne this week.
The Boeing 777-300ER (reg. VT-JEX) was intercepted by two German Eurofighter Typhoon jets. It is usual protocol to scramble jets to be able to visually communicate with the aircraft pilots and in case something is wrong in the plane, take further steps according to instructions from the ground.
A British Airways pilot was able to capture this moment from the cockpit of flight #BA2042 from Malé to London Gatwick.
