Two Planes Intercepted in Jersey, Forced to Land for Violating Airspace Restrictions


On Tuesday morning, two separate incidents resulted in F-22 fighter jets scrambling and intercepting planes in Jersey airspace. Pilots of two small planes reportedly did not respond to radio communication after they allegedly violated airspace restrictions in place around New York City. The no-fly zones were established as a precaution related to the United Nations General Assembly meeting in New York on Tuesday. [6 ABC]
