The jet was quickly escorted out of restricted airspace after “mistakingly approaching a guarded area,” according to the Secret Service. According to a preliminary inquiry, the pilot was not on the right radio network and was not following published flying advice, therefore the agency stated it will question him.
Before Biden visited the seaside resort, the Federal Aviation Administration issued flying limitations, as is customary for presidential excursions outside of Washington. A no-fly zone with a 10-mile radius is contained within a 30-mile secured area. On TA News reporter claimed to have seen Biden motorcade to a Rehoboth Beach fire station. The president’s entourage of reporters was not included in the motorcade.
Before taking off, pilots are required by federal laws to check for flying restrictions along their route. Accidental airspace violations still occur, especially near temporarily prohibited zones. Military airplanes and Coast Guard helicopters are frequently employed to intercept planes that violate the president’s flight restrictions. Intercepted planes are redirected to a nearby airport, where law enforcement interviews the crews, and any criminal or civil fines are assessed.
