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.

    Move along. Nothing to see here.

    • Think I’ll avoid Air France.

      • Exile1981

        maybe air canada as well

  • Oh, now they are worried?

    • Exile1981

      Well airplanes cost a lot to replace… citizens not so much.

    A pretty straight forward and simple fix. Get rid of ALL muslim crew members.

    • Exile1981

      Add in ground crew, mechanics, baggage handlers, food delivery staff, cooks and of course security staff.

      • WalterBannon

        do the job right

        ban Islam

        deport all muslims

      • Maggat

        They are included in – all.

      • Editor

        Yeah, since they already have identified “radicalized ground staff” and “ten people are already under surveillance”, it would seem pretty simple and logical to fire their violent, medieval asses. The French definitely still aren’t ready to take their country back.

  • WalterBannon

    Maybe they should not employ muslims at the airports anymore

    Thorough, efficient, airport/airline security is very expensive and hard to integrate.
    Security theatre on the other hand, is highly visible, stupid, and cheap.

    Run a sting and dismantle the cells and groups 1 at a time. If any Air France crashes and kills people personally sue the ground crew and their associates. Bleed them through lawfare and dismantling
