Fighters Scrambled For Bush Ranch TFR Violation

ilot Busted Restricted Airspace Twice Prompting Calls To NORAD

A man flying an as yet unidentified "small plane" flew into restricted airspace near President Bush's Crawford Ranch in central Texas not once, but twice on Sunday.

KWTX reports the second violation prompted calls to North American Aerospace Defense Command who scrambled fighters to investigate. The errant plane was forced to land at the airport in Gatesville, TX.

Waiting to speak to the gentleman were members of the US Secret Service who released him after determining the airspace violations were "inadvertent."
snip
Some in the general aviation community have called for an end to TFRs saying they are ineffective and only serve to set unsuspecting pilots up for criminal prosecution or enforcement action from the FAA because of inadvertent airspace violations. The government typically publishes the location and duration of any TFRs days in advance.

I wonder if the monkeky's neighbors still like him.

5. Now wait...
...they launched fighters on 9/11 and anyone who says otherwise is a freeper.

'Course, they sent them fighters in the wrong direction, but they did launch.

Up, up and away.
