High above the same tourist town in which terrorists took down a Russia jet, back in August British holiday-goers almost met the same fate.
This new revelation was uncovered as authorities listen in on terrorist chatter coming to and from the Sinai Peninsula, especially from ISIS leaders in Syria. Reports suggest an ISIS ‘mole’ was within the Sharm el-Sheikh airport in Egypt.
Back in August a Thompson jet carrying 189 passengers was fired upon by a terrorist rocket, causing the pilot to use evasive action.
It was above the resort town that the pilot of the jet, who was in the cockpit but not at the controls, notices the missile headed toward the jet. The passengers remained unaware of the incident and crew notified only after landing.
This incident has been confirmed by the British Department of Transport.
From the Daily Mail:
A British plane carrying 189 passengers came ‘within 1,000ft’ of a rocket as it approached Sharm El Sheikh, it emerged last night.
The Thomson flight from London Stansted only took evasive action after the pilot spotted the missile speeding through the air.
The jet landed safely, and holidaymakers were not told they had been seconds from disaster.
The revelation comes amid claims British jihadists had spoken about an Islamic State ‘mole’ at Sharm el-Sheikh airport minutes after a Metrojet plane crashed in Sinai, killing all 224 on board.
