Fighter Jets Scrambled After Small Plane Violates Airspace During Obama Conn. Visit
The Federal Aviation Administration said a small plane violated Presidential airspace Monday night.
Two F-15 fighter jets were scrambled to escort the homemade aircraft to MacArthur Airport in Islip.
The FAA said the aircraft entered restricted airspace over Long Island around 6:30 p.m.
The airspace where the plane was flying was off limits during President Barack Obama’s campaign trip to Stamford, Conn., earlier in the day.
