French intelligence concerns over ‘sabotage attempts’ on Air France planes

Air France has suffered a string of worrying attempts to its planes apparently by radicalised ground staff – including a bid to cut communication between the cockpit and engines – according to French reports.

French intelligence is on tenterhooks after a series of incidents involving Air France planes taking off from Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport, according to Le Canard Enchainé, the investigative and satirical weekly.

“We have noted numerous anomalies before commercial flights,” a French intelligence source told the paper. “They appear to be attempts at sabotage,” the source is cited as saying, adding that “ten people are currently under surveillance” in the company.
