It was an incredible sight! I had never seen anything like i t and it crossed slowly over Falmouth, heading towards Otis Airforce Base.
There are conflicting reports about what intercepted the small plane. FAA believes it was an F-16 fighter jet. However, National Guard jets were in the air but did not intercept the Cessna, a spokesman for a National Guard said. The jet was not from Luke Air Force Base either. Buckeye police initially reported a Blackhawk helicopter was also involved in the intercept, but those claims cannot be confirmed Monday afternoon.
The F-16 pilot flew alongside the smaller plane, and then moved into its flight path to get its pilot's attention. When that didn't work, Strickler said the F-16 used flares.
