Impressive footage has been posted on Facebook showing German Air Force fighter aircraft intercepting a Jet Airways 777-300ER passenger flight from Mumbai to London this week after it failed to respond on the correct air traffic control frequencies.

The footage, taken over Cologne in Germany from a British Airways plane and posted by Facebook user CirrusPilot, can be viewed here:

Incredible footage of the German Air Force intercepting a Jet Airways 777-300ER bound for London (from Mumbai) yesterday after it failed to respond on the appropriate ATC frequencies. The trailing British Airways plane captured the footage near Cologne Germany. The JA pilots saw the Eurofighters and after speaking over emergency frequencies the plane carried onto London. #ChemtrailsEdit:Many commenters have noted that at the 1min 30sec mark of the video there is a small dark object. The object is moving faster than the other traffic. It originates far to the left of the Euro Fighter and takes a 45 degree angle direction towards the North East of the video shot. Perhaps a shadow of another aircraft crossing above. #UFO

The Jet Airways pilots later confirmed that they saw and communicated with the Eurofighters over emergency frequencies. The Jet Airways flight safely reached London.

News outlet MensXP.com quoted an official statement from Jet Airways: “Jet Airways has duly reported the matter to the concerned authorities including the DGCA. As part of the standard process, the flight crew of 9W 118 has been de-rostered pending investigation.”

The DGCA is India’s Directorate of Civil Aviation, Jet Airways being an Indian airline.

Now for the mystery in the video clip, pointed out by CirrusPilot: “Many commenters have noted that at the 1min 30sec mark of the video there is a small dark object.

“The object is moving faster than the other traffic. It originates far to the left of the Euro Fighter and takes a 45 degree angle direction towards the North East of the video shot. Perhaps a shadow of another aircraft crossing above. #UFO.”

A shadow? Perhaps. But very strange. No wonder there’s a #UFO hashtag!
