Rather have a fighter intercept than another 911.

Been on an intercepted flight many years ago. 1968 flying from BOI to LAX. Fighters out of Nellis AFB used to intercept commercial jet aircraft for practice in the Nevada corridor. We got lucky that day and saw a fighter up close off our DC9's wing. No big deal, the captain announced it.
