3 planes breach no-fly zone over Obama vacation

PALM CITY, Fla. (AP) — Federal Aviation Administration officials say they’re investigating three more apparent breaches of the no-fly zone above President Barack Obama’s vacation spot along Florida’s Atlantic coastline.

According to the FAA, a Lancair 320 allegedly entered the temporarily restricted airspace Saturday afternoon. The plane was flying from Boca Raton to DeLand.

On Sunday morning, FAA officials say a Cessna allegedly entered the restricted flight area. The plane landed at Okeechobee Airport.

A Robinson R44 helicopter allegedly entered the restricted zone Sunday afternoon. The FAA says the helicopter landed at Okeechobee Airport.

Two F-16 military jets escorted a small plane away from the no-fly zone over Palm City on Saturday morning. U.S. Army Lt. Col. Mike Humphreys said the planes forced the Cessna 152 to land in Witham Field in Stuart.

Didn't Barack Hussein Obama just spend about 3 weeks in Hawaii during the holidays? I thought he wasn't going to rest until he got the budget crisis solved.

Air traffic control tells the planes which routes to take, so if the pilots were following those instructions, is it really their fault if they didn't know they were flying in a "temporarily restricted airspace"?

There are so many rules and regulations, it's nearly impossible to keep track of them anymore.

@Niles... TFR 's are part of the flight planning of the PIC .... Ultimately PIC is responsible ......

There are many planes flying that do not call controllers. There are certain areas that pilots need to call controlllers, and some areas pilots are not required to call controllers.

Walter, I think it was that whole state of the union speech ordeal, he's tired. I'm sure he will be back on the job in time to criticize the house for not having a solution to the March budget cuts.

Now Obama is telling planes they can't fly? What's next? The poor republicans have bent over backwards to compromise with him about the budget. They have caved in on everything. Oh no wait they have done the opposite. My bad.
