A small airplane was forced to land at the Camden County Airport on Tuesday night by Philadelphia police after having a close call with a television news helicopter in northeast Philadelphia, authorities said.
 

NewsDay

Police said the plane was flying dangerously low and nearly collided with a KYW-TV news helicopter that was covering a traffic accident on Interstate 95.

Initial reports from NBC News in Philadelphia said the plane was forced down by Attack Planes for violating airspace.

What airspace would it have been violating?

The pilot of the Cessna, to quote Full Metal Jacket, is "in a world of #."

I've always wondered how they could do this since a cessna isint a very fast aircraft, versus a figher jet being very fast in comparison. I would think it would take some work to keep the fighter in the air while keeping pace with the other aircraft. Bet the look on the cessna pilot's face was priceless to look out and see armed fighters ordering him to the ground.

the jets can fly pretty slow, about 80 knots at the slowest... and if thy need to go slower they can ly by picthing back more and just flying on thurst.

and if the pilot doesn't get the idea after a while they fly on thrust right over the plane... the nice sudden downburst will usually give people the idea then.

NBC News, the sad part is that most of this stuff is not being reported by The Mainstream Media. We will probably hear about it from them in a couple of days. For some reason they have been waiting up to a month to release any kind of information, threat or not. Yes a low blow to Mainstream Media Outlets.

This Just in from the news source in philly, (i know the players involved)
A small plane was forced to land after a near miss with a CBS 3 TV news copter. The cesna style plane was followed until it landed in NJ, and the pilot was taken in to custody by NJ State PD. The incident is under investigation. The CBS 3 website has not yet been updated as this occured sluightly before the 11pm news...They should have something by the morning posted @ CBS3.com

The plane was followed by a helicopter from Philly Tac-Air unit, not jets....
Reports say the plane was also observed to be flying at to low an altitude and without normal lighting.

Thats an interesting coincidence. A news chopper crashed here in Brooklyn today onto a building. The article says the cause of the accident is under investigation, but I doubt the two incidents are linked. Just a bit odd is all...

I did a google search and foound that this same thing happened back in March also. My guess is that they post these "no fly zones" around the president whenever he is visiting somewhere, but that some of the pilots of these small planes don't get word of the posting until it is too late. (i.e. an F-16 in your face
)
