Aircrafts Fly In Camp David Airspace

Aircrafts Fly In Camp David Airspace

At least three small airplanes intruded into airspace over Camp David this weekend while President Bush was at the mountain retreat in Maryland, including one escorted to a nearby airport by fighter jets, the Secret Service said Sunday.

Spokesman Jim Mackin said Secret Service agents questioned the pilots of all three planes one of them an ultralight determined the intrusions were inadvertent and took no action against them beyond referring the cases to the Federal Aviation Administration for possible administrative action.

He said a fourth plane also an ultralight possibly was involved in a Saturday intrusion over Camp David, but that plane was not located after it left the area where it was being tracked.

In addition, Mackin said a small plane momentarily penetrated the very edge of restricted airspace around Washington on Sunday before veering back onto an approved course and continuing on its way.
