Perhaps because a Beechcraft is a slower and lower flying target, one often associated with drug smuggling, unlike a large jet cruising by at 35000 ft.

It's cost them a whole lot more than the fine by having 2 Sukhois in the air for a few hours.

the SU time can be written off to the training budget, hell given the milage they got out of it it could probably go to the recruitment budget

Why would they think they could fly through Indonesian airspace without a diplomatic clearance? Dumb and dumber!

The Barron possibly had its transponder on as was a delivery flight, the 777 did not.

Writing from a position of total ignorance here, but is it possible that similar flights in the past were monitored but no action taken, as the security risk to Indonesia must be miniscule, but since MH370 the Indo military is now on heightened alert?

I would speculate that it's a combination of factors:

* Morning rather than middle of the night - possibly higher alert level due to the fact that it's not necessary to drag any high ranking officials out of their beds

* Very slow aircraft. Fighter jets caught up with it and the first order to land was issued when it was over 300 nm inside Indonesian airspace. At the cruise speed of Beechcraft Travel Air, that's something like 2 hours from appearance to intercept.

* Pepper and turpentine enemas which undoubtedly were administered liberally at all levels of command inside Indonesian Air Force when it turned out that they missed MH370.

So what's the true story

Was it a paperwork misundersting?

Surly they did not plan to overfly another country without prior notice and approval

Dick,

Surely you dont expect the Captain to dump a load of crap on our Indo mates if he had the required paperwork


As a regular In this part of the world, I am sure that he accepts these 'fines' as a normal means of doing business

Probably a whole lot quicker to do what they did than to apply for an International flight clearance through Indonesian airspace through the normal channels. And probably would have cost about the same anyway .. lol

Just look at the beautiful photographs of the Sukhois.
Have a look at the lovely starched and pressed uniforms - et cetera.

I just can't help wondering....

If the Sukhoi pics are the ones that have been splashed in the media, they are actually courtesy RAAF, taken the last time the Indons came to play here - there is a Super Hornet nose visible in some of them.
