Incident in the skies over New York: F-16 fighter sent to intercept West Point Academy training aircraft

38

The United States Air Force Command reports a somewhat strange incident in the skies over New York. Reports indicate that the West Point Military Academy trainer has violated flight restrictions over the largest city in the United States. These restrictions were introduced a few days ago in connection with the beginning of the work of the UN General Assembly. In this regard, the airspace over several areas of New York was declared a no-fly zone.


According to the latest information, the no-fly zone regime violated the Cessna training aircraft belonging to the aforementioned US military academy. The single-engine board was piloted by an instructor pilot.

In this situation, the US Air Force command was forced to give the order to intercept the training aircraft. An F-16 fighter of the American Air Force was taken into the air, which was sent to intercept.

Ultimately, the West Point Academy's single-engine aircraft was forced to turn 180 degrees in the area of ​​the George Washington Bridge connecting the banks of the Hudson.

At the same time, the appearance of Cessna in the closed part of the airspace of New York was called accidental.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has confirmed the interception of the training aircraft. The statement said that "NORAD has taken comprehensive measures to maintain a high level of security in the restricted area."

West Point Military Academy spokesman Lt. Col. Beth Smith:

Our pilot did briefly violate the current flight restriction regime. He entered the no-fly zone for a short time, then left it, realizing that he had committed a violation. The aircraft was immediately returned to the home base.

        Do you really think that in 2001 it was possible to fly wherever you want, and deviations from the route were not stopped? This is not the first time that aircraft have been hijacked in the world, and fighters are always assigned to escort them. Especially over land.
        This was a CIA operation, and all the planes were deliberately at airfields. There were no attendants.

        and what did they teach? they raised the fighter again, again sent it to intercept and deployed Tsesna already over the city ... replace Tsesna with a Boeing and all that the fighter could have time to look at the skyscraper burning into which Boeing had already flown from a beautiful angle request

    Forgot to warn? Like: "you don't go there, you go here, otherwise the snow will fall into your head."? what
    Or maybe the dude was a bungler, he was instructed, and he dreams of something else? lol
    This also often happens. yes

    Well, what a problem, how he entered and left, but for us today, when on September 22, 1944, Soviet troops liberated the capital of the Estonian SSR, Tallinn, from the Nazi invaders.

          Do not blaspheme. During the liberation of Tallinn, more than 6 thousand soldiers of the Red Army were killed. During the liberation of Estonia, more than 61 thousand soldiers of the Red Army were killed. Today Estonia is a member of NATO, there are troops there against Russia. We must not arrange "bravado" and feasts, but
          commemorate the dead who shed their blood in vain.

            According to you, it is blasphemy, but we just get together in the evening, we serve a tricky snack at work, who brought what, both Russians and Estonians and everyone who lived in the Estonian SSR, and we will have a drink and talk about how our fathers liberated Tallinn. For us this is our day, but for others it is a stranger, but we are not rubbish or bastards, and at this moment when I write to you, we all drink for the USSR, for our former but ours. We have our own, and you probably have yours, and we know more than you what was and is in Estonia.

      Judging by the actions of the Estonian government and the fascist underdogs organizing parades, they were not completely released ...

    In principle, there is no problem to put a navigator, which will automatically give a signal to enter the no-fly zone.

    Cessna's appearance in a closed section of New York airspace is named random
    Did the instructor accidentally break the ban? Unlikely, unless he was a little out of his mind. We managed to intercept the light engine, but what about the high-speed ones? While a decision was being made, he would have rammed the UN building. Judging by the situation in the United States, nothing happens to them by chance today.

    There are a lot of planes in Omerik, should you write articles about each incident?
    Or is it easier to just deflate and rewrite their information?

    A lasso was thrown over the plane and escorted to the stall where it was supposed to be.
