A Pertinent Question.

There is a breaking report in Britain of two military jets escorting a passenger plane into Manchester. The story has it that there is a possibility of there being a ‘device’ on board the passenger plane. This raises an interesting question because military jets are designed to perform two functions:

1. Shoot other planes down.

2. Bomb targets on the ground.

So what, I am curious to know, is the intended function of the two military jets in the event that the report of a device proves accurate?
