Capitol & White House evacuated...because of a stray plane
    #4169729 - 05/13/05 05:56 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

"Stray plane causes 15-minute frenzy in D.C.

A small plane strayed into restricted airspace Wednesday and prompted an evacuation of the White House and Capitol, sending presidential staff, lawmakers and tourists scurrying.

A frantic 15-minute scene unfolded in the skies as the plane flew southeast toward the White House. A government Black Hawk helicopter and small jet intercepted the single-engine plane shortly before noon and tried to signal the pilot to change course.

When that didn't work, two F-16 fighter jets circled the plane and fired signal flares until it veered away 3 miles from the White House, according to Lt. Jody Vazquez, a spokeswoman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).

Bush wasn't told of the threat until he finished his bike ride, said Scott McClellan, a White House spokesman.

"He was not in any danger," McClellan said.

Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., was on the Senate floor when police told him they needed to evacuate. "They said get out of here, so I ran," he said. "

Parananoia - it scares me to think about what could happen taken to its extreme...

this kind of thing makes the american public feel like they're living under constant threat, it installs fear in everyone and fearful people are much more easily manipulated. anyone ever get tired of the terror alerts? how it goes from orange, to red, and back to orange and on and on?

French media love to tell about these curious happenings going on in the US...seeing people yell "Get out of here! this is an emergency! Hurry up!" and seeing thousands of people in the street running away from a stray plane is entertaining, but in a weird way...

Remember when Clinton was in the white house and a small plane actually crashed into one of the buildings.

Do they even have airplanes in France? lol

Anyways here is a Reuters article i found after a quick search showing that, in fact, France's shit does stink.

France on red alert for D-Day ceremonies: Military prepared to shoot down any aircraft that enters no-fly zone

Oh wow, I have been reading more about your "Vigipirate Security Plan"...very interesting.  Take a look at this.

Vigipirate

It appears to be what we in the US call "martial law" and it seems that it is enacted in France on a regular basis.

"French media love to tell about these curious happenings going on in the US..."  :lol:
