Attempted Hijacking

A Sudanese man used a knife from the in-flight meal to threaten crew members and demanded that the flight be diverted to Jerusalem, the official said. Guards on the flight were able to detain the man and no one was hurt, but it sent a chilling message. It was 10 years ago that Egypt Air Flight 990 in October, plummeted into the Atlantic Ocean, about 60 miles south of Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. All of the 217 people on board were killed. The pilot on that flight deliberately crashed the plane.

Egypt to get new fighter jets

Egypt clinched a deal with the U.S government last week to buy 20 advanced Lockheed Martin Corp F-16C/D fighter aircraft valued at $1.6 billion, the U.S. Defense Department said Tuesday. Reuters is reporting the first of the new batch, known as block 50/52, are expected to be delivered in early 2012, a spokesman for the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said. The Pentagon told Congress in October that Egypt was seeking as many as 24 F-16C/D block 50/52 models. It said at the time the deal could be worth $3.2 billion, including base construction, support equipment and other hardware and services.
