“Throughout this occasion, the fighter plane allotted flares – that will have been seen to the general public – to realize consideration from the pilot,” the NORAD launch mentioned. “Flares had been employed with the best regard for security of the intercepted plane and other people on the bottom. The flares burn out shortly and utterly and there’s no hazard to folks on the bottom when allotted.”
