Low-flying plane causes scare in downtown Miami

Low-flying plane causes scare in downtown Miami

Quote:
MIAMI - (AP) -- The Florida National Air Guard scrambled two F-15 fighter jets Thursday after officials spotted a low-flying small plane circling over the downtown area.

A photographer had permission to fly over downtown to take pictures, but Miami police had not been briefed on his mission, said police spokesman Lt. Bill Schwartz.

Within 15 minutes of spotting the plane, the pilot was asked to leave the area, Schwartz said.

The fighter jets, stationed at nearby Homestead Air Reserve Base, continued to circle the city in combat air patrol Thursday afternoon, said Major Richard E. Bittner, spokesman for the 125th Fighter Wing of the Florida Air National Guard.
