A plane crashes in Virginia: F-16 fighters wanted to stop it before it collided

A Cessna 560 civilian plane was bound for New York. He veered 500 kilometers off course and walked past the Capitol while Joe Biden was playing golf.

In an interview with CNN on June 5, a US official said that the Cessna 560 Citation V civilian plane crashed in the US state of Virginia. Before it crashed, F-16 warplanes wanted to stop the plane.

The plane took off from Elizabethton Municipal Airport in Tennessee and was bound for Long Island MacArthur Airport in New York. The US Federal Aviation Administration said the ship crashed in a sparsely populated area of ​​mountainous terrain.

“The pilot did not respond, the Cessna crashed near the George Washington National Forest. NORAD (US Aerospace Defense Command) tried to contact the pilot before the crash,” the report said.

There were four people on board, it deviated 500 kilometers off course. Authorities reported that there were no survivors at the crash scene.

The fighters did not shoot down the plane. The army was allowed to fly at supersonic speeds, so they heard a sonic boom near Washington. Sources familiar with the investigation said the fighter pilots tried to signal the Cessna pilot, but he did not respond.

Capitol police said their units went into a state of high alert as the plane passed. US intelligence agencies said they did not change positions to ensure the safety of President Joe Biden.

“The president was playing golf at Andrews Naval Air Force Base in Maryland,” CNN said.

Recall that in March of this year, a Su-34 fighter-bomber of the Russian army crashed in the occupied Yenakiyevo in the Donetsk region.

And in September last year, a US Navy plane in the United States collided with a bird and crashed in Texas. At least one house was damaged in the incident.
