Some scary news coming out of New Jersey as NORAD scrambled jets today as a small plane was near Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey where the President was located.
Jets from the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, had to be scrambled to intercept a small plane near the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Saturday afternoon.
The U.S. fighter jets intercepted the single engine RV-7 aircraft after the plane entered restricted air space near President Donald Trump’s Bedminster golf club. According to NORAD, the jets fired flares and escorted the plane to a nearby airport.
The plane was not responding to communication, according to authorities.
“This afternoon, a small aircraft violated the restricted airspace near Trump National Golf Club, Bedminster, NJ,” the U.S. Secret Service said in a statement. “The pilot of the small aircraft did not respond to radio communications and U.S. military aircraft were launched. Communications were subsequently established with the pilot and the aircraft landed as directed.”
The Secret Service added, “The President was not in danger and the security of the complex was maintained throughout. Further investigation of the airspace violation is pending.”
