Fox News reports two Royal Air Force (RAF) Typhoon jets were scrambled to assist an American Airlines passenger plane shortly before it landed at London’s Heathrow airport on Tuesday after a woman attempted to gain access to the flight deck.

The woman, who has yet to be identified, was arrested by London police after the pilot on flight AA078 bound from Dallas-Fort Worth requested urgent assistance.

The plane landed safely at approximately 10:50 a.m. GMT and the arrest was made soon after, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said.

Police said the woman did not pose a terror threat to the Boeing 767-300, which had 161 passengers and 12 crew on board.
