AUA Boeing intercepted by Eurofighter at the Austrian border

Austrian Airlines’ fleet was enlarged with an additional Boeing 777, a twin-engine long-haul aircraft, yesterday. The aircraft with the registration OE-LPF was intercepted by two Eurofighters of the Austrian Air Force before it was well received in Vienna-Schwechat. A photographer of the Austrian Armed Forces captured this moment before the fighter jets turned off earlier than planned.

 

The reason: A thunderstorm over the Eurofighter's home airport in Zeltweg/Styria. While it is possible to fly during a storm, take-off and landing during a thunderstorm can be dangerous. This applies not only to the Eurofighter, but to every aircraft.
