Air defense officials say two Air Force fighters intercepted a small plane that entered restricted airspace over Washington.
The Baltimore Sun says Homeland Security offices met with the plane's pilot, who said he had overflown Baltimore's airport by mistake. (http://bsun.md/paZRDT)
The pilot was the plane's lone occupant. Two F-16s intercepted it and escorted it out of the area about 8:30 p.m. Monday. It landed at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
The Federal Aviation Administration was not able to communicate with the pilot of the Beechcraft 58, which is a small, twin-engine plane. The FAA notified the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
