26 October 2006

A Czech Air Force Jas-39 Gripen fighter from the Caslav air base assisted the crew of a KLM Boeing 737 on October 25 who suspected that one of the cargo doors might have opened in flight. Several Gripens were on a training mission in the area when one of them was called in for a visual inspection over Benesov at FL280. No problems were noted and the KLM flight from Vienna continued to Amsterdam. (Prague Daily Monitor)
