Aircraft That Crept Too Close To Biden’s Delaware Home Intercepted By NORAD

A fighter aircraft and a helicopter from the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) were deployed to intercept a civilian aircraft that entered restricted airspace over President Biden’s residence in Delaware over the weekend. 

The aforementioned incident took place at approximately 2:25 p.m. on a Saturday afternoon. NORAD officials promptly responded to the situation and, in a swift and coordinated operation, ensured the safe interception and subsequent landing of the civilian aircraft. 

This intervention aimed to address the breach of restricted airspace over President Biden’s Delaware residence. NORAD’s actions exemplified their commitment to safeguarding airspace integrity and the security of high-profile locations. Their effective response underscores the importance of maintaining stringent security measures in such instances. 

Subsequently, NORAD officials provided details of this operation to the Delaware News Journal, shedding light on the successful mission to ensure public safety and protect sensitive airspace.

To get the pilot’s attention, the NORAD jet released flares, which, although harmless, might have been visible to onlookers on the ground. The Secret Service described this response as a precautionary measure.

“Assets were scrambled to intercept and the civilian aircraft safely landed at a nearby airport. There were no impacts to the protectee’s movements as a result of this incident and agents from the US Secret Service are investigating in coordination with the FAA.”

On Friday, President Biden departed from the White House to return to his residence in Greenville. Following this relocation, the president was observed participating in an afternoon religious service at St. Joseph’s on the Brandywine Catholic Church.
