British Fighter Came Within 3.3 Miles Of Royal Jet
A Eurofighter Typhoon on exercises
over northern England Thursday came within 3.3 miles of an RAF
BAE125 carrying Princess Anne, the only daughter of Britain's Queen
Elizabeth. No one was hurt in the incident, but the Princess's
pilot took "avoiding action," according to local news reports.
Anne was on her way to a pair of speaking engagements in
Scotland when the near miss occurred. A British controller spotted
the Typhoon, which was on a test flight, turn to cross in front of
the BAE125 and called for evasive action.
British media report this is the second near miss involving a
royal this year. In March, another Royal Squadron jet carrying
Prince Charles had a near miss as the heir to the throne was on his
way to Spain to attend a memorial service for the 191 victims of a
train station terror bombing.
