British Airways Flight 149

Stephen Davies, when investigating how British Airways Flight 149 was used to transport military operatives into a war zone, wrote:

An MI6 source explained to me the cozy relationship between British Airways and the intelligence services. BA, he said, is known to the service as "Bucks Fizz" and any mission would always involve co-opting the pilot. These type of black ops missions are much more common than is realized; all governments are fond of them because they provide deniability, but they blur the lines in ways that have serious potential consequences for the companies involved.[2]

The pilot-in-command of the Heathrow-Kuwait leg was Captain Richard Brunyate, was an MI6 asset, and knew the plane was carrying a secret team of spies. Because of this, Brunyate had been given contacts with the Kuwaiti resistance, and managed to escape with several other crew members from the hotel they were being held in, while the more than 300 passengers were held hostage by Iraq.[3]
