Defence officials have had to allay the concerns of Sydney office workers, who watched as an air force fighter chased what appeared to be a passenger plane.It was just a flypast, to bid farewell to a retiring aircraft, and the ‘fighter’ was just a Hawk trainer shadowing it for photos.
Some people thought Australia's most populous city might be coming under attack.
One eyewitness said the sight and sound of the planes was "terrifying".*Sigh* Are we all wimps now, after 9/11…? Even the Aussies….?
Another said he'd never been so scared.
