What is the idea behind escorting a plane with a threatened bomb on board? What can the escort do?

to blow it up in the air, before it crashes to somewhere and explodes there.

That's not the real Donald Tump

The real Donald Trump is being held hostage in the DRK. That Donald is an imposter - a DRK agent.
You didn't think the real Donald Trump would suggest building a wall between the US and Mexico did you???

The DRK Donald is an exact physical match to the real Donald. The surgeons were astonished that they were able to alter the DRK volunteer's penis so it was small enough - and still functioned.

Meanwhile the read Donald is enjoying the finest hospitality that the DRK penal system can offer.

I read that the careful Swiss Air Force has not yet implemented a 24 hour 7/7 defence service, but it is coming soon.

That escort service must have been during office hours, as a passenger took a photo of the Swiss fighter plane.

How would the Swiss Air Force deploy the new fighters, when the enemy was on the ground in the alpine areas? For a ground attack a pilot needs to see the enemy for a second or so before firing. If he is flying at 200 Km/hr in a mountain valley, how will he make a ground attack without crashing into the mountain? The idea of buying fighter planes is completely stupid!
We are not not talking about WWII technology... The fighter can receive info from the ground with the exact location of the enemy, or even by itself using thermal data, and launch a guided bomb... No need to see the target.
