When a US fighter jet intercepts a plane violating restricted airspace [WATCH]

Here’s what it looks like to be intercepted by the United States Air Force for violating restricted airspace.

As Written By William Fierman,Business Insider:

A Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Cessna 182 will assist the F-15.

In order to make this clear, the Civil Air Patrol recently posted the following video, taken from a Cessna 182, showing a practice intercept by an F-15 in preparation for the event.

    I saw this first hand when President Bush came to our town. A guy in a private plane was violating the restricted airspace when all of a sudden an F-16 came out of nowhere and release a bunch of flares next to the interloper’s plane. He quickly veered off like a scared loon.

    Now if the Navy would learn to have some balls and not let Iranians seize our ships or boats. In all fairness, our dear leader shares a good deal of the blame.
