    BANDA ACEH, Indonesia — Poor weather has forced seven French navy fighter jets taking part in a training exercise to make emergency landings in northern Indonesia.Local air force base commander Col. Hendro Arief says the crews of seven Dassault Rafale combat planes landed safely at Sultan Iskandar Muda air force base in Aceh province on Saturday, 90 minutes after taking off from their aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle in the Indian Ocean.
    Arief says the jets were holding a training exercise outside of Indonesian territory when bad weather forced them to land while returning to their carrier, which was about 100 nautical miles west of Sumatra island.
    He said Sunday that Indonesia’s air force has completed a comprehensive inspection of the planes.

    ''He said Sunday that Indonesia’s air force has completed a comprehensive inspection of the planes.''


    "We did a security and clearance inspection and co-ordinated with relevant parties," said Aceh air force base chief Hendro Arief. "Everything was clear."

    standard practice, nothing more

    Five are now back while the other two were still at the base on Sunday.

    seems that 'asylum' was not so attractive after all!!

    Aceh which has introduced Sharia law in the province would be the last place you would seek asylum. Indonesia is slowly heading down that well worn path of Islamic fundamentalism that these Islamic idiots can't seem to extricate themselves from. Hey TC, why not go there for a holiday. It'll get you away from all those nasty Christians.

    They could always buy harrier jump jets from the Brits although that might be a bridge too far for the froggies.

    Your quest for the truth is obviously rigorous.
