Posted by Tanstaafl - Fighters escort airliner from Paris to U.S. - Jan. 6, 2004:

U.S. fighter planes escorted an American airliner part of the way from Paris to Cincinnati Tuesday afternoon after wiring in a woman's heated jacket prompted security concerns, U.S. government sources said.

Who wears a "heated jacket"? Bizarre.

U.S. officials ordered the fighter escort because the Paris-to-Cincinnati fight had already left the ground before French officials notified their U.S. counterparts about the incident, according to U.S. government and aviation security sources.

And isn't it just like the French to not bother to tell us that there was a problem until after the fact.

Brian - The "heated jacket" is a motorcycle jacket. You can plug it into your bike so that you stay warm. Now you know. And knowing is half the battle.
