Coast Guard Intercepts Helicopter in Va.

Posted:

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP)- The Coast Guard has intercepted a helicopter flying in restricted air space over Williamsburg.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command says a Robinson 44 Helicopter was escorted by a Coast Guard HH-65 helicopter to Wakefield Municipal Airport on Tuesday morning where it landed without further incident.

The air space was restricted because President Barack Obama was in town preparing for his debate against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

On Saturday, two small planes also entered the temporary no-fly zone. They were allowed to continue their flights after two F-16s escorted them out of the no-fly zone.
