Pilots feared UK-bound easyJet flight would be shot down!
The pilots of a holiday jet which suffered a potentially catastrophic electrical fault refused to divert to a nearer landing spot because they feared they would be shot down by military craft.
The easyJet Airbus A319 lost all radio contact with the ground when its systems failed, an official report concluded yesterday.
The captain was forced to fly manually after the instrument screens in the cockpit went blank.
There is definatly a need to have a secondary electric source and a secondary radio on civil aircraft in this day and age it should be easy to instal.
