You booked a flight to London from your local airport with a stop at New York-JFK along the way. Both hops have the same flight number, so it must be a "direct" flight - meaning it's the same plane all the way, even though it stops once. Right? Not necessarily.
Would the result have been different had Turkey not chosen to shoot down a Russian plane which may have veered momentarily -- and this in the Turkish version, mind you -- into its territory? We'll never know.
You're right off the coast of Normandy, a speck of land in the cold waters of the Channel between France and England. A mere 25 miles west of the Cherbourg Peninsula of France, and 80 miles south of the British coast. A steep-sided and car-free paradise.
