Two planes were intercepted for entering a temporary no-fly zone over President Donald Trump’s golf club in New Jersey while he was there on Friday, Aug. 2.
Two F-16 fighters were deployed on two different occasions by North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) to intercept two single-engine civilian aircraft on Friday night, reported News 12 New Jersey.
The air-violation happened near the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J while the President was vacationing there, according to Fox News.
The NORAD officials said the pilots of the two civilian airplanes stopped communicating with air traffic controllers when they entered the temporary no-fly zone at 7:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.
According to News12 New Jersey, the pilots “established positive communications with air traffic control and departed the restricted airspace,” after NORAD responded to them.
The air violations were resolved.
A similar incident happened during Trump’s last visit to the golf course when a small aircraft entered the no-fly zone, reported the Washington Examiner.
In the last case of air-violation over the golf course, the pilot was forced to land at a nearby local airport.
