The Typhoon roared into the skies from RAF Northolt in north west London after air traffic controllers lost contact with a commercial airliner carrying hundreds of holidaymakers.

A second RAF warplane was kept on standby on the runway.

The Thomas Cook scheduled flight, travelling from Tunisia to Glasgow, sparked the emergency call-out shortly before 11.30am.

The plane lost communications with the aviation authorities as it headed north over the French coastline.

 

A Ministry of Defence spokesman said: ‘We can confirm that one Typhoon launched. This was in response to a commercial aircraft that was out of communication with air traffic control services.

‘Communications were quickly restored; no further action was required.’

The £125million Typhoon had only left the runway for a few seconds before contact was re-established with the captain and his crew.

But the security alert highlighted the tensions surrounding defending the Olympics from terrorists – and the speed at which the jets can respond to an emergency.
