Once again from the Sheldon Adelson Internet web site some further info regarding events as transpired two months ago in the sky vicinity Sharm el-Sheikh.
BRITISH THOMSON AIRFLIGHT NOT NECESSARILY COMING UNDER MISSILE ATTACK. A MISSILE SPOTTED YES BUT PART OF A ROUTINE EGYPTIAN MILITARY EXERCISE?
seen at Freeper and the original article from the Daily Mail MANPAD
attack directed against civilian airliner flying over the Sinai HAS
OCCURRED! TWO MONTHS PRIOR TO THE CRASH OF THE METROJET A321."
A MISSILE INDEED BUT NOT A MANPAD DIRECTED AT THE THOMSON FLIGHT.
"Rocket attack on UK tour jet: Pilot with 189 passengers dodged missile above Sharm El Sheikh"
"British media reported on Saturday that a British passenger jet came close to being hit by a rocket as it came in to land at Sharm el-Sheikh in August, although the British government said it concluded the incident was part of routine Egyptian military exercises, not a deliberate attack."
"The pilot of the Thomson flight from London to Egypt took evasive action after spotting the missile coming toward the plane as it flew to the Red Sea resort, the Daily Mail reported."
NOT A DELIBERATE ATTACK BUT THE DAMAGE WAS DONE NONETHELESS. THAT PILOT OF THE THOMSON FLIGHT DID BELIEVE HE WAS UNDER ATTACK!
