This was definitely THE surprise of the day! On Zulu Alert and fully armed escorting an airliner that didn't respond to ATC calls while crossing the french airspace on the way to CDG. Quite impressive and unusual sight around CDG though! Special thanks to Vincent BOYER for being so "alert" on this one!

This was not a training flight but a real Zulu alert with the ailiner not responding to ATC calls when crossing the French border on her way to LFPG. The French Air Defense Command Force launched this M2000 for interception and escort until the aircraft safely landed... Note the live A/A Magic II missiles under the wings.
