Private jet ordered to land in Charlotte

Private jet ordered to land in Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (CNN) -- An Egyptian-registered private jet on a "pre-sale inspection" flight was ordered to land under fighter escort Tuesday at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport because its authorization to fly in U.S. airspace had expired, federal officials said.

Two F-16 fighter jets from Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, South Carolina, escorted the plane down at Federal Aviation Administration request, the North American Aerospace Defense Command said. The jets broke off their escort before the aircraft landed after FAA officials said they resolved the situation, NORAD said.
