Plane Intercepted Near Camp David


A small civilian plane that was flying near Camp David in Maryland was intercepted by two U.S.  Air Force fighter jets. The plane was headed for the Presidential retreat at a time that President Barack H. Obama and his family were staying at the site.

The plane, which had fallen out of radio communication, was intercepted about 17 kilometers from Camp David. The fighter planes accompanied it away from what is a restricted fly zone without incident.
