The New York Post: Fighter jet intercepts small plane near Trump’s golf club

A U.S. Air Force fighter jet on Saturday intercepted a small plane entering the “no-fly” space near President Donald Trump’s private golf club in New Jersey, the White House confirmed on Sunday.

A statement from spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said the “low wing general aviation aircraft” was detected around 12:30 p.m. Saturday and an F-16 intercepted the plane and escorted it from restricted airspace.

“The aircraft was met upon landing at Sky Manor airport in Pittstown, N . J ., and the pilot interviewed by law enforcement and deemed a non-threat,” the statement said.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump were spending the weekend at his Bedminster golf course before returning to the White House later Sunday.
