The F-15 fighter and MH-6 helicopter were deployed after the pilot of a single-engine RV-7 failed to respond to radio communication while entering the temporary no-flight zone around 1 p.m., NORAD spokesman Cameron Hillier told the Bridgewater Courier News.
The military aircraft fired flares to get the pilot’s attention and made radio contact before escorting it to a nearby airport, Hillier said.
He said the Secret Service will decide whether to charge the pilot.
