F-16s scrambled after Cessna interrupts president’s golf weekend

The Associated Press is reporting that a Cessna 152 entered restricted airspace over the resort where President Obama is golfing today, triggering the scramble of two F-16 fighter jets.

CBS News’ Mark Knoller notes that the incident isn’t all that uncommon.

Violations of TFR’s – Temporary Flight Restrictions are a common occurence when the Pres is visiting areas outside DC.

Knoller also noted that members of the press were dealing with their own space restrictions. Perhaps the danger of stray skeet shot was too great?

Press, not even WH Travel Pool, allowed on grounds of The Floridian resort where Pres Obama is spending the weekend. How rude.
