    RAF Typhoon jets have been launched to investigate an incident involving a civilian aircraft within UK airspace, the Ministry of Defence has said.

    A Pakistan International Airlines plane has been diverted from Manchester to Stansted Airport, a Manchester Airport spokesman said.

    An Essex Police spokeswoman added: "An incident has occurred on an aircraft. Police and partners are responding."

    The BBC understands that the plane has now landed in Stansted.

    BBC defence correspondent Jonathan Beale said that police were expected to meet the plane at the airport.

    The plane, flight number PK709, reportedly left Lahore at 09:35 local time. It was due in at Manchester at 14:00 BST.

    The MoD said responsibility for the incident had now passed to Essex Police and the Home Office. The MoD was not able to say how serious a threat there was on board.

    A Pakistan International Airlines spokesman Zufiqar Bijarani told CNN: "We have been told there may have been a bomb threat." But he did not say if he had anything to confirm or deny this.

    Stansted Airport said on Twitter that it was operating normally.

    'Serious incident'
    Philip Baum, of Aviation Security International, told the BBC: "This is certainly a significant incident, however the fact that fighter jets were scrambled to intercept is not unusual.

    "We don't know what the incident was: fighter jets are scrambled when there is a bomb threat, when there is a hijack, when the wrong transponder code is used or if an aircraft cannot communicate with the ground. Often the result is when there is an unruly passenger on board.

    "What is interesting in this case is that it would appear that the aircraft was only 10 minutes from landing - these are initial reports coming in - when they decided to divert to Stansted. So to actually change a destination 10 minutes from landing would certainly imply that there was some serious incident taking place."

    Brawl inside between passenger and crew. Pilot informed ATC. May be over reaction or may be plain cautious considering the flag the airline carried.

    No... I think they should allow more Pakis so that make UK their ghetto completely. Thats the way British would learn a lesson of creating this global headache called Pakistan.

    2 Pak men charged for 'endangering'flight to UK


    LONDON: Two men have been charged with "endangering an aircraft" after they were arrested on Friday for trying to forcefully enter the cockpit of a Pakistan International Airways airliner.

    Taxi driver Tayyab Subhani (30) and restaurant worker Mohammed Safdar (41) both from Nelson in Lancashire will appear in court on Monday.:lol::lol::lol::lol: Typical pakis of UK:wave::wave:

    On Friday, PIA Flight number PK709 which departed from Lahore sent off a signal specially meant for an emergency on-flight, just 10 minutes before it was to land at Manchester. Royal Air Force's Typhoon fighter jets diverted and escorted the passenger plane to Stansted that is designated to handle all hijacking cases.

    Later, Essex police said the incident was being treated as a criminal offence and not terrorism-related.

    A scuffle broke out between passengers after which these two Pakistani men refused to give out their names or their details. The two men also made a few threats to the cabin crew.
