Air Force fighter intercepts plane close to Trump NJ golf course

Air Force fighter intercepts plane close to Trump NJ golf course

A tiny basic aviation aircraft flying close to President Trump&rsquos private golf club in New Jersey was intercepted by a U.S. Air Force fighter jet Saturday afternoon, according to officials.

The U.S. military mentioned an F-16 jet intercepted the plane flying &ldquowithout correct clearances or communications&rdquo at around 12:30 p.m. in the temporary flight restriction zone about the president&rsquos Bedminster, N.J. golf course, where Trump is spending the weekend.

Continental U.S. North American Aerospace Defense Command, in charge of airspace surveillance for the continental U.S., mentioned the intercepted aircraft landed at an airport in Pittstown, N.J. with no incident, exactly where regional law enforcement met the pilot.

White Home spokeswoman Lindsay Walters mentioned the pilot was &ldquointerviewed by law enforcement and deemed a non-threat.&rdquo&nbsp

Given that 9/11, the military, beneath&nbspOperation Noble Eagle,&nbsphas produced much more than 1,800 intercepts of nonmilitary aircraft. Walters stated the F-16 had followed &ldquostandard practice in such cases.&rdquo

Trump arrived in New Jersey Friday afternoon, and was scheduled to depart for Washington Sunday.
