A third plane was reportedly forced to land Saturday by U.S. military aircraft following an incident Friday in which two other commuter planes were grounded by fighter jets. The Friday incident was captured on video.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command scrambled F-16 fighter jets on two separate occasions to intercept planes that violated a Temporary Flight Restriction on Friday, according to a NORAD release.
NORAD officials say the incidents occurred at 7:30 and 8 p.m. and involved pilots of single-engine civilian aircrafts not communicating with air traffic controllers, according to the release.
Here is a possible video and a photo of the flight activity:
The third plane was reportedly grounded on Saturday after it entered the restricted area, according to News12. The plane was forced to land at Central Jersey Regional Airport in Hillsborough.
Trump was expected to fly into Morristown airport at 4:45 p.m. on Friday and then take a helicopter to his golf club in Bedminster at 5 p.m. He will return to the White House on Sunday, Aug. 4 when he leaves the Trump National Golf Club at 4:30 p.m., according to the FAA.
As a result, a VIP Movement Notification was issued for the Bedminster and Morristown area from Friday 5 p.m. through Sunday at 5:45 p.m.
Along with flight restrictions, locals can also expect major delays or road closures during his travel times on Route 10, Route 24, and Interstate 287 and 78 around the airport and the golf club.
This was Trump’s third visit to the golf course this summer. Trump’s last visit to his golf club on July 19 to 21 was for a political fundraiser in support of his candidacy for the 2020 presidential election. During his visit he surprised a bride and groom getting married at the Trump National Golf Club. (See Related: Trump Crashes ‘MAGA’-Themed Wedding In Bedminster: Video)
