The following link complements and explains what concerned the
English residents of this Spanish region:


Basically, the actual story - as reported by the Spanish Air
Force - is as follows:

The defense system found that a plane was flying without a
flight plan and needed to be intercepted, "as always occurrs in
this type of situation". Since the Moran de la Frontera AFB
(Seville), was the nearest, a Eurofighter took off from there in
order to intercept the unidentified aircraft, one which the
radar determined to be flying very low, with no lights and
without flight plan (probably a drug-carrying plane from Africa,
I add.)

Precisely because of the low flying height of the unidentified
aircraft, the Spanish military aircraft had to fly very low and
it produced the alarm. Finally, not able to locate the small
plane (probably it had already landed in the region, I add), the
jet returned to its base.
