A British plane carrying 189 passengers heading Sharm El Sheikh in August. The pilot spotted the missile in the plane’s way and took evasive action to avoid it, Joinfo.ua reports with the reference to Daily Mail.

The passengers were not told about the possible disaster.

The British Transpot Department held the investigation and concluded that it was not a “targeted attack”, but Egyptian army’s routine exercises.

This news emerged last night, as the investigation of the crash of the Airbus A321 of Russian flight 9268 Kogalymavia in Egypt continues.
