    "IAF F-16s scrambled from Uvda air base had AMRAAMs locked on to the aircraft and were waiting for the "launch" order. Cairo ATC or not, the pilot-in-command of the Brit airliner knew EXACTLY where he was and where he was heading, within 30 meters, from his GPS-based glass cockpit display, and you can bet that this particular flight deck crew will not be flying the Sharm-el-Sheik route anymore. The insurance carrier won't stand for this kind of recklessness! When weather is bad, airliners departing Sharm International are routinely cleared for transit across Israeli airspace. Unauthorized intrusions like this are typically a career-ending move for any airline pilot. No excuse with today's avionics.
