This is a remarkable footage of Jet Airways Boeing 777-300ER bound from Mumbai to London, being intercepted by German fighters over Cologne after it failed to respond to Air Traffic Controllers.

This video shows us the approach, identification and inspection phase of an intercepted aircraft. Fighters will approach an unidentified aircraft from behind and on a safe distance but close enough so they can have a look in the cockpit.

Luckily everything went well, the pilots on the 777-300Er established contact and after all was sorted out, it carried on to London.
