They will be billed according to a pilot colleague as one day we were flying a fixed wing aeromedical flight from Europe to the UK, he called me up to the front and said a well known airline had an aircraft with two Typhoons sat off their wings some miles ahead and it was going to cost the airline a lot of money unless it was a system failure. Knowing the airline it was probably the pilots who were going to be paying and I suspect a short sharp interview with the CAA.
